Community involvement at Chertsey High School

As a school serving the whole community, we need to ensure our educational offer reflects differing abilities and aptitudes through individual learning plans. We will not accept the low ambitions or expectations that exist among some parts of the community. We want to open the minds of our students to possibilities and inspire them to believe they can achieve amazing things, whatever profession they choose. We have lined up a range of successful local residents from a wide range of professions to come in and talk to our students about their experience. We'll have lawyers, journalists, teachers, charity leaders, artists, doctors and small business owners. We have decided to increase dedicated time in English and Maths lessons, as these are the foundations of so many jobs or careers.

 

Why does Chertsey High value community involvement?

At Chertsey High School we believe that the school, parents, and the community should work together to promote the health, well- being and learning of all students. When the school actively involve parents and engage community resources they are able to respond more effectively to the health-related needs of students. Community involvements foster partnerships among schools, family and community groups, and individuals. These partnerships result in sharing and maximising resources. And they help students develop healthy behaviours and promote healthy families.

 

Chertsey High School’s promise to the community

Chertsey High School will adopt procedures relative to the promotion of the school environment that is conducive to learning and supports strong family and community partnerships. Chertsey High School will:

  • Strive to involve parents and family members of all ages and grade levels.

  • Strive to harness all available community resources, including but not limited to organisations, businesses, talented individuals, natural resources and technology, to engage each student in achieving the necessary skills and knowledge and;

Today, Prison Officers visited Year 9 students at CHS to run sessions about what life in prison is like - and the numerous reasons why they would want to avoid it. They also heard from a former prison inmate, someone that now tours with the 'Prison Me No Way' initiative. #pmnw1 https://t.co/zJ1lYpo5pM
