Chart Wood School will, as far as possible, remain open to support the families of key workers and the vulnerable children we serve. Please contact us on admin.merstham@cws.surrey.sch.uk if you need anything, and on dsl@cws.surrey.sch.uk if you have any safeguarding concerns.

Vision and Ethos

Our Vision

We work with students, families and the community to provide a safe,
supportive, caring and collaborative environment that nurtures, inspires and
challenges, leading to suitable levels of achievement for all.

We will motivate our young people to move successfully along their life
journeys, through academic, vocational, social and recreational opportunities
appropriate to the needs, interests and abilities of all pupils.

We support our young people in sustaining positive relationships both in
school and in the home.

Our Ethos and Values

Chart Wood School follows a nurture-based reflective and restorative approach with
all students.

We have the highest standards and expectations for all children to experience
success, lead empathetic lives and fill productive roles as members of society. Their
individual contributions to school life will be valued and their talents celebrated.
Students, staff, parents and visitors will show respect for, acceptance of and
responsibility to ourselves, each other and the wider community.

Together we will build a fun, safe and caring school that promotes the joy of learning,
high personal achievement, respect for individual differences, dignity for all and
equal opportunities by eliminating discrimination.

We will nurture, encourage and listen to every voice in our community, including
students, parents and carers, friends and staff. Maximising the potential of every
student will be placed at the heart of all decision making.

We will always be a strong advocate for CWS; being proud of our school and Trust.

Our aims

We will:

  • Ensure mutual respect for every person connected with the school
  • Support all students to leave as confident and independent individuals, armed with the necessary skills to ensure that they can advocate effectively for themselves.
  • Support students to pursue their ambitions, attain full social inclusion and achieve a high quality of life.
  • Provide a curriculum that is broad and balanced, engaging and interesting, focused on the individual needs of each student, supporting the development of key academic, functional, vocational and creative skills.
  • Teach our students to keep themselves healthy and safe
  • Help our students to learn to understand and manage their feelings
  • Provide help for parents & carers to support and nurture their children

 

 

 

The difference in my boy since he started at Chart Wood a year ago is amazing and really positive. My boy loves all aspects of his school day and now comes home calmer and happier. I wouldn’t want to place him anywhere else now.
