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 provide parent educational activities throughout the school year to help parents support their children’s learning.
  • Frequently communicate school performance, student progress, personalised learning strategies, and academic opportunities, communicating this through paper copies as well as online parent communication systems.
  • Work with agencies and businesses to support community based developmental activities that prepare young people with transition into secondary school, promoting on-going achievement.
  • Promote collaboration among parents, schools, and community on school improvement and student achievement projects.
  • 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;
  • Will encourage business partnerships to assist students in the successful transition to employment or further education.

 

Effective parent involvement programmes will include:

  • Collaborating with the community - Community resources will be used to strengthen schools, families and student learning.
  • Communicating - Communication between home and school will be regular, two-way, and meaningful.
  • Parenting - Parenting skills will be promoted and supported.
  • School decision making and advocacy - Parents will be full partners in the decisions that affect children and families.
  • Student Learning - Parents will play an integral role in assisting student learning.
  • Volunteering - Parents will be welcome in the school, and their support and assistance will be sought.
