Welcome to our school
Head Teacher's Welcome
Welcome to Chesham Primary School and the new calendar year 2018.
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 now in 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. We all thoroughly enjoyed Sleeping Beauty at The Middleton Arena in December; Years 3 and 4 will be heading for a fabulous weekend of outdoor activities at Robinwood in April whilst Years 5 and 6 are heading to the Isle of Wight for a long weekend of activity and exploration in June. All classes will also enjoy at least two organised visits during the year to support and supplement their curricular studies. Events are on the school website newsfeed and calendar as well as detailed in our monthly newsletters.
This term will include our second Parents' Evening of the year; our annual Easter Egg competition; stay n'play sessions for our foundation stage children and parents; after school clubs and competitive matches leading, hopefully, to even greater success in the wide range of events which we enter; 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. Last term they held another Glo Disco, film night (Trolls sing-along) and Christmas Fayre.
We supported Action Aid through our Harvest Festival; MacMillan Cancer Care through a coffee morning in October and Bury Cancer Support Centre through our Penny Post collection.
After school clubs and activities will take place every night and most dinnertimes, offering children varying opportunities to try something different. The football, netball and cross country teams made us very proud with their superb efforts and deserved success last year. Teams will be competing in events in those sports this term, whilst our choir, Raise the Roof, will be performing at Bury Met later this term following their performance as part of Bolton Wanderers carol concert at The Macron Stadium in December.
We had all the excitement of our 50th birthday last June; a different sort of excitement with OFSTED in November and so many amazing performances during the KS1 and KS2 productions. It promises to be continue to be another exciting, hard working and packed year.
