Follow this link: "Don't Worry!" 

  Copies of all letters sent home can be found under the parents page of the website by clicking the "letters" tab. 

We have issued Tesco 'student' cards to all children eligible for a free school meal. These have been topped up to cover the summer holiday.

If you and your child are finding the current situation challenging  then please check the SEN section for further advice.






How else could Y6 finish their time at Chesham but with a Mad Hatters Tea Party?!

Year 6 - achievers through the ages!



From September 1st to reduce the “crush,” we ask that only one parent brings children each day; that you walk or cycle to school if possible and that dogs do not accompany you.

We will meet you at the school gates and staff will walk the children up to school.

At home time Classes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 can be collected from designated areas on the playground whilst Classes 7, 8 and 9 will be walked through the car park to be collected at the car park gates. Arrival and exit times will be staggered as follows and we ask that you stick to them strictly from the very first day:

Arriving at 8.45 a.m. Class 8 and Class 6 at the car park gates and Class 1 at the footpath gates. These classes to be collected at 3.00 p.m.

Arriving at 9.00 a.m. Class 9 and Class 5 at the car park gates and Class 2 at the footpath gates. These classes to be collected at 3.15 p.m.

Arriving at 9.15 a.m. Class 7 and Class 4 at the car park gates and Class 3 at the footpath gates. These classes to be collected at 3.30 p.m.

         Unfortunately there will be no before or after school provision initially as we try to keep class bubbles separate and work the staggered start and finish times....

Even during lockdown Raise the Roof have been busy led by Miss Hudson who has put this amazing video together: "ROAR!!!!!"

ALFA have uploaded songs and activity songs to enjoy and singalong with on their Youtube channel as well as a special song, written by Mr. Nelson, to wish "Happy Birthday" to anyone 'celebrating' during the closure of school.

(Just search "ALFA" education)
