Welcome to our school
Head Teacher's Welcome
Welcome to Chesham School and the academic year 2017/2018!
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 and 2013) - 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. 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 first Parents' Evening of the year; welcome assembly and parents meeting for our foundation stage children and parents; a No Pens Day; Harvest and the start of our after school clubs leading, hopefully, to even greater success in the wide range of events which we enter.
The Friends of Chesham (our PTA) continue to raise funds for school through a number of well organised and fun activities. This term look out for another Glo Disco, film night and Christmas Fayre.
We will be supporting Action Aid as part of our Harvest Festival and plan to support MacMillan Cancer Care through a coffee morning in October.
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 again be performing at Bury Met later in the year.
Following all the excitement of our 50th birthday year; it promises to be another exciting, hard working and packed year with an expectation of a further inspection from OFSTED at some point during the year.
