Belong, Believe, Achieve, Succeed

A VERY WARM WELCOME  TO CHESHAM PRIMARY SCHOOL!

            

Here in our school

Let us be peaceful at all times

Let our rooms be full of happiness

and respect for each other.

Let love be in our hearts

With kindness and compassion for all.

Let us remember

In learning together,

We grow together

And succeed together.

Secondly

A new website – Parenting Smart – a free online resource featuring practical advice and tried-and-tested tips for parents and carers of primary age children.   

Parenting Smart is: 

  • Created by Place2Be’s parenting experts  
  • Based on evidence and our experience of working with children and families 
  • Designed with busy parents in mind, with short videos and articles  
  • Topics from meltdowns to friendship difficulties, from anxiety to the transition to secondary school 

parenting.smart@place2be.org.uk
www.place2be.org.uk

A reminder that there is now no requirement for close contacts to self-isolate unless they have symptoms, return a positive test for Coronavirus or a positive result for the latest COVID-19 variant, Omicrom is returned.

All the latest advice is available on our parents page.

All children should arrive between 8.45 and 9.00 a.m. at the very latest.

Arrangements in the morning remain the same: We greet children at the gate; FS can walk straight into their outdoor area, KS1 children can walk up the path and onto the playground, Classes 4, 5 and 6 go through the car park and in through the front door and Classes 7, 8 and 9 go through the car park and straight into their classrooms.

We have maintained the extended Key Stage 'bubbles,' encourage hand washing and good hygiene, maintained class dinner tables and from Class 2 upwards ahve forward facing desks.

Children can be collected from the playground: FS from their outdoor area at 3.20 p.m., KS1 at 3.20 p.m. and KS2 at 3.30 p.m. - the upper juniors will leave via the front door.

Staff are encouraged to wear masks when moving around school or in communal areas and we continue to encourage parents to wear a mask when bringing or collecting children, waiting until after 9.00 to approach the school office. Sadly we cannot yet open up school more widely for parents to come into school on a regular basis.

It is essential that we all act to protect our mental health as well as our physical health. To support the mental health and well-being of children and families across our communities, Team Mental Health and EdStart Sports Coaching have partnered to design and develop a range of fun 'Wellbeing Through Sport' activities to do at home.
