On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, I’d like to welcome you to Henry Chichele Primary School.
Henry Chichele Primary School is situated in the market town of Higham Ferrers. We are set in extensive grounds, away from the main road.
It is currently a community one form entry primary co-educational school for children aged 4 – 11 but we are set to extend to two form entry from September 2016. The Local Authority has therefore increased our Planned Admission number for Reception Class from 30 to 60 for the academic year 2014/15 onwards.
This school was built in 2004 and comprises 7 classrooms, a large central hall, music room, offices and staff room. A double temporary classroom will house the additional classes over the next two years while the school is remodelled and extended.
The school grounds are secure, set with trees, hedges and fencework. There is a pond area where the children can observe wildlife and a trim-trail for the children to execise on.
We are a school which believes that every child and adult who is part of the school community has a right to feel happy, respected and valued. We believe that all children deserve the best and our aim is to help them succeed by reaching their full potential in every area of school life. We value the broad and balanced curriculum which our staff offers and all children are able to fully access not only academic, but creative and physical areas of the National Curriculum.
Each child is considered as a whole person; developing skills, concepts and attitudes necessary for the opportunities and experiences of the future. We endeavour to motivate, support and inspire the children within our care and all successes are shared and celebrated.
Below is a link to our Prospectus which we hope you will read to gain a sense of the value we place in each child and our desire to ensure standards, in all areas, remain as high as possible within a safe, secure, happy and caring community school.
Slowly but surely the rooms are starting to take shape...........an exhausting process! The multi-use room is fully fitted out today. Tomorrow and Friday will be a frantic couple of days with the remainder of the furniture and new photocopiers arriving for the whole school. Here are a couple of photographs to whet your appetite!
After what seems to have been an endless project the final week before handover has arrived for the rear phase......it is all very exciting! The cleaning is in full swing upstairs as they move through, down and out. The pinboards, whiteboards and Interactive whiteboards will be completed all week alongside the wi-fi. The roller blinds are up in the reception classrooms which are floated with light and colour (the toilets are really cute!).
Outside the covered canopy is up and the coloured fencing waiting to be installed. The tarmac team move in tomorrow to lay the handstanding areas. The hoarding will start to be taken down this week so feel free to take a 'sneaky peak' through the harris fencing if you are collecting from the playground at the end of the school day!
The remainder of the furniture is all scheduled for next week as majority of it is already being stored locally for us so all being well the half-term will see us sorted.
We shall post some pictures after we have completed 'snagging' on Thursday.
