Our School

A Note from the Head Teacher:

Together, over time, we are proud to learn to make a difference to ourselves and others.

Dear Parents

Thank you for visiting our website to find out more about Chiltern Primary School – where everyone is welcomed and everyone is valued! We have now started to teach the third generation for some of our families, and they all still agree that our school has a family, village-school feel despite its town location. The education of the whole child remains as equally as important to us as academic standards, as we prepare our pupils for the next stages of their life.

The last 20 years of teaching at Chiltern Primary has been a pleasure because the pupils are so enthusiastic, we have great parental support and our staff and Governors are dedicated.

Our pupils achieve well from their varied starting points and thrive on learning as much as they can – they are not scared of a challenge and relish the opportunity to showcase their talents at local and National levels – having recently won the Michael Rosen ‘Play’ poetry competition…hot on the heels of having a winning film shown in an IMAX cinema in London.  Past pupils have gone on to gain success as pilots, doctors, nurses and concert musicians… to name a few varied careers. Even three of our staff were previously pupils at our school!

The children, through their School Council and Eco Council voice, support many local, National and Global charities, regularly receiving the Parish award for the most money raised for selling Poppies and always looking for the next good cause to boost. These interests have been maintained even over the last 2 years with significant COVID interruption.

If would like your child to join our engaging, safe and happy school, please book an appointment to come in and meet us. I look forward to meeting you and your child soon.

Kind regards,

Penny Howell

Head Teacher
