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.

Curriculum

The aim at Chart Wood School is that all pupils have a right to access a curriculum that is of outstanding quality, meaningful and appropriate to their individual needs whilst not compromising their entitlement as learners with special needs. Lessons at Chart Wood School should motivate, engage and excite our pupils. Clear routes of progression and development within curriculum planning result in coherence and continuity throughout the School.

With the complex learning and behaviour needs of the pupils being admitted to Chart Wood School, we acknowledge that the needs of the individual are central and that the provision offered should be sufficiently flexible to enable pupils to be placed at an appropriately challenging point on the educational continuum at any time during their School career.

This School works in partnership with parents/carers and their views along with their child’s are taken into account in achieving the appropriate balance between pupils’ rights to curriculum access and the need for some to access other experiences such as alternative curriculum, mainstream inclusion, therapy or intensive tuition to enhance or consolidate core skills. Curriculum development in conjunction with the needs of the individual, strives to ensure maximum progress for all pupils.

The School send curriculum information home on a termly basis. If you require additional information regarding our curriculum offer, please contact the school.

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.
