Our School

A Note from the Head Teacher:

Dear Parents

Thank you for visiting our website to find out more about Chiltern Primary School – where everyone is welcome and everyone is valued!

We have over 15% SEN, 40% EAL, 26 different languages spoken and over 16 faiths followed – yet we retain our family, village-school feel from when we were one-form-entry. The varied starts our pupils are from does not stop them achieving well from these starting points or against National expectations. The education of the whole child is just as important to us as academic standards, as we prepare our pupils for the next stages of their life.

I have been at Chiltern Primary for over 17 years now and couldn’t imagine teaching anywhere else.  Whilst here, I have always been surrounded by enthusiastic pupils, dedicated staff and Governors and great parental support. Our pupils achieve well and thrive on real learning opportunities – they are not scared of a challenge and relish the opportunity to show case 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.

The children, through their school 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.

If you would like your child to join our happy, successful school, please book an appointment to come in and meet us, so you can see the wonderful learning our pupils experience each term.

I look forward to meeting you and your child soon,

Kind regards,

Penny Howell
Head Teacher
