We are happy to announce that Chaucer School are currently developing a new school website which is under construction and will be available soon.

 

 

   

 

 

On Tuesday January 4th, students in Years 7 and 11 will be on-site as normal. Students in Years 8, 9 and 10 will be given a specific timeslot to come in and complete Covid testing -- but for the rest of the day, students in these year groups will be provided with online lessons. These students will return to normal on-site lessons on Wednesday January 5th.

 
As things stand, the online learning is for one day only - but should things change over the holidays or upon our return in 2022, we want everybody to be as prepared as they possibly can be.
 
As parents/carers, can we ask you to ensure that:
  1. your child/young person knows their school username, email-address, and password
  2. you have access to a suitable device, with internet access, or that you let us know where this is a problem
  3. your child/young person has access to all necessary equipment for home-learning: pens, paper, pencils etc.
  4. where possible, you create a calm and distraction-free home learning environment

Behaviour Refinements - May 2021

Please see the short video below for the adaptations to our behaviour management processes as we continue our push to significantly reduce the levels of low level disruption in lessons, some refinements will be made to how the R-Room operates during the school day. These changes have been made to support students in being able to engage with learning, allowing them to make progress in line with their potential. ‘Support for Success’ will continue to offer high levels of support to all students who require it during lesson time.



 

Return to school expectations - April 2021

Dear parent/carer

As we plan to return to school after the Easter holidays we are seeking your support in reminding your young person of our normal school expectations as we enter the summer term. These have been shared with you and students recently but we hope that this holiday period will allow you some time and opportunity to revisit the school expectations and indeed to allow you the opportunity to visit shops as they reopen to ensure students are in full school uniform and fully equipped for learning.

Please take the time to watch the short video below for further information.



As always thank you for your support

Chaucer School

Y11 Students Uniform

Year 11 students– as we are moving towards the end of the academic year, Chaucer school would like to ensure uniform standards are maintained with the highest expectations whilst at the same time applying an understanding and reasonable approach regarding Y11 students and their remaining time in school. With this in mind, we would like to share some reasonable adjustments to our school uniform policy for Y11 students only.

All Y11 students are expected to wear the following:

  • A white shirt and school tie.
  • Chaucer school blazer should be worn if students have an appropriately fitted blazer. Where this is not the case, students in Y11 can substitute their blazer for a blue or black jumper/sweatshirt without a hood.
  • Chaucer grey trousers or skirt should be worn where possible. If this is not possible then black trousers or skirt can be substituted. No jeans, ripped jeans or tracksuit bottoms allowed.
  • Footwear should be all black. No white or multicoloured footwear will be allowed.
  • No hoodies or outdoor coats/jackets can be worn in lessons.

Students in Years &, 8 & 9 will begin to access their live lessons from Monday 25th January. All students will be starting from week 1.

From Monday 25th January students can expect to receive five emails a day, from the members of staff who are due to teach them that day. Each email will include a link to the Microsoft Live Event, any resources or materials required to complete the lesson, and any further instructions as necessary.

Please see the timetables below for each year group.
