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 if you need anything, and on if you have any safeguarding concerns.

Our approach

We offer a flexible and responsive curriculum framework for students to create their bespoke learning journey.

In the lower school the thematic area that links all subjects together is ‘perspectives on the world’. This enables students to have a good understanding of what it means to be a good citizen: within school, within their local community and globally.

They are strongly encouraged to develop their own learning strategies and apply these to a range of contexts.

Students are also encouraged to manage their own behaviour and be independent in regulating any sensory or emotional needs.

Learning in the upper school is linked by the theme of ‘careers’.  At all opportunities learning should be linked to real life contexts so learners can transition successfully into their adult lives.

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.
