We are delighted to welcome you and your child to our school website. We recognise that every child has a strength in some area of school life and we offer a breadth and balance throughout the curriculum in order to help children develop into well-rounded individuals.

We work hard at creating a positive partnership between home and school and we have many opportunities for parents and other adults to help in school. There are regular opportunities for you to meet with your child’s teacher to discuss his/her progress in all aspects of school life.

We are very fortunate in having a dedicated and committed staff that wants the very best for your child. They give a lot of their own time to ensure the quality of education that your child deserves.

We encourage regular communication between home and school and ask any parent to pop in or make an appointment if they have any concerns at all about a school related matter. We would much rather address a seemingly minor problem at an early stage than wait for it to perhaps become more serious.

If you are interested in our school I encourage you to see for yourself the work that we do, the high expectations we have of our pupils and the caring environment in which the children are educated. If you would like to arrange a visit, please phone the school so that an appointment can be made. We aim to be friendly, approachable and helpful.

I look forward to meeting you and I am confident that we can work closely together in the best interests of your child.

The School Ethos and Home School Agreement shown below are the very essence of what we at Princes Risborough Primary School believe to be at the heart of everything we do and all that we aim to provide for your child to help him/her grow into a well-balanced and responsible citizen who will be a credit to the school.

School Ethos
We aim to:
  • Provide for all within the school a supportive learning environment in which everyone feels safe and valued.
  • Deliver a varied and challenging curriculum in which very pupil is given the opportunity to achieve to the best of their ability.
  • Enhance mutual respect between all members of the school community and recognise one another’s unique abilities.
  • Develop self-esteem so that all are confident about their roles and responsibilities within the school and the wider community.
    This ethos is developed jointly by staff and governors and is for all within the school.
  • The Home School Agreement
    The Home School Agreement is a document which sets out the rights and responsibilities of all those involved with the education of the children at Princes Risborough Primary School and is part of the ongoing relationship between parents/carers, children and the school.

    The School in supporting this statement will:

  • Work cooperatively with the parents in a positive and respectful manner.
  • Encourage children to do their best in all that they do.
  • Encourage children to reflect on his or her actions and develop a good sense of responsibility.
  • Inform parents of their childs strengths and areas in which a child needs support.
  • Hold regular parent/teacher consultations.
  • Set and respond to homework according to our policy.
  • Write an annual report to parents informing them of their childs progress and attainment.
  • The parents in supporting this statement will:
  • Work cooperatively with the school in a positive and respectful manner.
  • Ensure their child attends school regularly and is punctual.
  • phone the school any morning their child is not in school and inform the office of the reason.
  • Provide up to date contact addresses and telephone numbers in case of emergencies.
  • Work closely with the school and actively encourage their child to follow school behaviour guidelines and work with the school when asked to do so.
  • Encourage the child to do any set homework.
  • Attend parent consultations when requested to do so and contact the school to make an appointment when they have any concerns or queries.
  • Try to become as involved in the life of the school as realistically possible.
  • The student in supporting this statement will:
  • Always try to do my best.
  • Be polite.
  • Do as I am asked by any adult in the school.
  • Arrive at school on time.
  • Listen to my teacher and concentrate on my work.
  • Do my homework and hand it in on time.

    A group of children representing each year group devised the above agreement.


    The school times.
    Our school day starts at 8.45 am. So please arrive on time so the start of the day is not disrupted. The gate is open at 8.35 am. Please say goodbye to your child on the playground as there is not enough room in the corridors.

    Nursery Session 8.45am – 11.15am
    Key stage 1(Infants)Reception and Year 1 and 2 8.45am – 12.05pm & 1.05pm – 3.00pm
    Key stage 2(Juniors)Years 3 to 6 8.45am – 12.15pm & 1.05pm – 3.05pm

    The children are organised into mixed age classes. In the current academic year the table below shows this organisation and the number of pupils in each class.
    Year Classes Children (Per Class)
    Reception 1 29
    Reception and Year 1 1 28
    Year 1 and Year 2 2 29
    Year 3 and Year 4 3 26
    Year 5 and Year 6 2 28
    Every class has a class teacher in charge. S/he takes the register each morning and afternoon and is responsible for the children in the class during the day. The class teacher should be your first point of contact if you or your child has any concerns about school related matters.
    Please make sure all your childrens things are named- if you write in the name please check it after washing as it fades over time and becomes difficult to read.
    We discourage bringing personal belongings to the school as they can get lost or broken.
    On P.E. days the children will need named white shorts, red t-shirt and plimsolls. Long hair should be tied back and ALL earrings removed. If this is not possible tape must be provided or your child will not be able to take part in the lesson in the interest of safety.
    The children have the opportunity to borrow a library book from our school library, which they can keep for a maximum of two weeks.
    Your child may bring a named bottle of WATER into the class. This saves disruption should your child be thirsty.
    The school is covered by a Health and Safety Policy. Once every term we perform a routine fire practice in order to drill the children in the event of the need to evacuate the school
