Admin, when you observe a teacher, especially informally, don’t feel you have to critique EVERY time. Too often teachers are told, "you did great BUT", instead, " Leave the BUTS behind”. Let them know what they did well & move on. Leave them feeling validated & appreciated!

Student Welfare

At Chobham, the physical and emotional wellbeing of our students is an absolute priority. It is important to us that all students are known as individuals and given individual attention. We understand that during the course of their career at Chobham, many of our students will encounter challenges in their lives which necessitate additional support in as comprehensive and professional manner as possible.

IMG 8400We are also very mindful of stresses and pressures which may affect our student body at key times in their school careers such as the run up to examinations or preparation for interviews in Year 11 or in the sixth form. Large numbers of students may feel pressure at these times and we wish to equip them with strategies to help them cope as well as they can.

Some of the ways in which we promote and help manage student wellbeing are:

  • Developing excellent working relationships between students and staff so that students feel able to share difficulties and seek support.
  • Tutor group and year group systems which help build secure and trusting smaller communities within the Academy. In these environments, students feel more secure and more able to express themselves, ask questions and seek the support of peers and staff.
  • Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) delivered by tutors and through our half termly Innovation Days
  • Counselling, external mentoring and peer mentoring programmes for students
  • A highly qualified safeguarding team
  • A study support programme and structured, personalised preparation for examinations
  • A wide range of exercise and relaxation opportunities including; boxing, martial arts and mindfulness
  • Experience of mindfulness and relaxation techniques for all students so that they are able to use these methods when feeling under pressure.

Attendance and Punctuality

Good attendance is central to every child’s success at school. Research repeatedly shows that attendance is the single most important factor in determining how young people will achieve at school. Put simply, students from Years 7-13 learn more in lessons with their teachers than they do anywhere else.

In addition, good attendance and punctuality breed good habits. Getting to school regularly and on time gives students a sense of responsibility and satisfaction as well as preparing young people for the world of work.

We encourage students not to take a day off school unless it is absolutely necessary. Appointments should be arranged for out of the school day and permission will not be granted for holidays during term time. We seek the active support of parents in ensuring that their children are in school every day. Our attendance rate for the academic year 2018-19 was 95.7%. we aim to exceed 96% in 2019-20. Every student should aim to beat this target.

Good punctuality is also an important habit for success in life. Most Chobham students get to school on time but too many struggle to do this. Parents have a vital role to play in helping their children get to school on time. Parents can help their children by ensuring they have set an alarm before they go to bed and packed their bag the night before school. Uniform should also be set out ready the night before it is needed. We understand that many of our parents leave early for work, but if possible if parents can help by making sure their child leaves for school on time.

If a student is going to be unavoidably absent or late, parents can help by ensuring they ring the school before 8.30am.
