We are Nurturing

At Chesham Prep every child is nurtured and looked after with the utmost care and attention to their welfare and safety.  We strive to meet all our children’s changing needs on a day-to-day basis.  We communicate any pastoral concerns immediately and ensure that our anti-bullying measures are robust.  All our teachers work hard to really get to know each child in their care.  We have excellent relationships with the children and identify and solve any pastoral concerns immediately.

Our Early Years Department provides an extension of the love and security that your child has received at home.  Our older children are offered a wide breadth of opportunity, the chance to develop new skills and great confidence.  They are encouraged to take increasing personal responsibility, to be self-disciplined, fair- minded, honest and reliable, all within a supportive and caring framework.  We encourage them to be responsible for their own learning and to show resilience when faced with challenges.

At Chesham Prep we wholeheartedly encourage the move towards a healthier lifestyle within our school.  Our goal is to help pupils of all ages enjoy balanced meals with the occasional treat!

As well as a School Nurse, the school provides a confidential counselling service called ‘Chatline’ for any child who wishes to discuss any matter which might be troubling them.

CPS has been the most fabulous school for him and he has been cared for and nurtured throughout, as well as brilliantly taught.

I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you to all your wonderful teachers. After another parents evening I have come away with a huge smile on my face.  It never ceases to amaze me how well they know my children and how they all seem to have an incredible talent at bringing out the best in them. I have three incredibly different children and they never compare them. Instead, they quickly identify their strengths and use these to improve their weaknesses without judgment.

Pastoral guidance extends beyond the school gates, the excellent rapport between staff and pupils is most noticeable, with a balance between joviality and mutual respect.

ISI Report 2016

Parents feel that pupils are exceptionally happy and safe and it is through the school’s nurturing of their happiness and emotional wellbeing that the pupils are able to thrive in their educational studies.

CPS has helped me to build up courage and self-confidence.  I have made friends that I might keep for life
