Welcome to our school
Our aim is for every child to thoroughly enjoy being part of Chesham Primary School. We establish a calm, relaxed, orderly environment where everyone is valued and their talents recognized and celebrated.
The school lies north of Bury town centre and east of Walmersley Road, adjacent to the Lido. It backs onto extensive field and woodland areas, has its own playing field and a large tarmac playground.
We have an admissions limit of 45 children per age group; the children are arranged into eleven classes. In addition to the Head teacher and Deputy Head teacher, there are eleven full-time teachers, two part-time teacher and twenty two part-time teaching support assistants.
The school has its own kitchen and associated staff. A supervisor is employed to care for the children at the mid-day break working with nine welfare assistants. The school also employs a school business manager, administrative assistant, caretaker and two cleaners.
We enjoy the support of an active Parents Association, “The Friends of Chesham".
We are committed to the whole Chesham School community and like to work closely with parents as partners. We look forward to our involvement with all the children in our care.
