Welcome to our school
Head Teacher's Welcome
Welcome to Chesham Primary School and the new academic year 2018/2019.
Find out what's going on in your child's class and please do feedback to us what you find useful or what else you would like to see within the site. Chesham is a wonderful school full of fantastic children, fabulous staff and teachers and supportive parents. It is a happy and friendly place to work and play (as recognised by OFSTED in 2006, 2009, 2013 and 2017) - have a look and see just some of what we get up to.
We are always busy with plenty of hard work, but there are also lots of other exciting events to look forwards to. All classes will also enjoy at least two organised visits during the year to support and supplement their curricular studies. There are residential trips offered to Year 3 & 4 children (Robinwood) and Year 5 & 6 children (Windmill Hill Sussex) as well as theatre trips, visiting groups. Events are on the school website newsfeed and calendar as well as detailed in our monthly newsletters.
This term will include our first Parents' Evening of the year; stay n'play sessions for our foundation stage children and parents; a plethora of Christmas events; harvest; after school clubs and competitive matches and many other events and activities.
The Friends of Chesham (our PTA) continue to raise funds for school through a number of well organised and fun activities. Look out for discos, film nights and the Christmas Fayre.
After school clubs and activities will take place every night and most dinnertimes, offering children varying opportunities to try something different. Teams will be competing in events throughout the term, whilst our choir, Raise the Roof, have been asked to perform at the Bridgwater Hall no less, joining the NW Hospital Choirs for their the Christmas concert in aid of the Clik Sargent charity.
As ever. it promises to be another exciting, hard working and packed year.
