  • Behaviour Hubs programme

    Published 06/11/23

    As part of our drive for improvement, Chaucer School is taking part in the Behaviour Hubs programme, a Department for Education-funded programme to improve all aspects of behaviour in schools. We have been paired with an exemplary lead school who will guide us through a year of support in which we will further develop new behaviour cultures to make sure that all pupils can learn in a calm, safe and supportive environment.

    As part of this programme of support, we will be gathering the views of pupils and staff, to understand how they perceive behaviour in school. This will help us to identify areas for improvement. This survey will take place in school time and should last no more than ten minutes.

    Your child will receive an invitation next week to complete the survey via their school email address, using Microsoft Forms. Students will be identifiable by year group, but not by name, as we may share the collated responses with our lead school and the DFE as part of the programme. If you do not wish your child to take part in this survey, please let us know by the end of this school week (Friday the 10th of November) so that we can ensure your child does not receive the email to participate.

  • World Mental Health Day 2023

    Published 10/10/23
    Staff at Chaucer School dressed in yellow on World Mental Health Day (10th October) as part of YoungMinds’ #HelloYellow campaign, which called on people to stand together in support of young people struggling with their mental health, to show they matter and deserve the help they need, when they need it, no matter what.

    Young people are experiencing a unique set of pressures for a generation growing up, living through a pandemic and cost of living crisis against the backdrop of global instability, combined with other factors such as academic pressure, all of which is taking a toll on their mental health.

    YoungMinds is urging the Government to prioritise young people’s mental health, including providing early support in communities, increasing help in schools and reducing waiting times.

    Laura Bunt, Chief Executive at YoungMinds, said: “We want to thank Chaucer School for their support for #HelloYellow. By wearing yellow, they’ve shown young people’s mental health matters. This comes at a time when the young generation are facing a unique set of pressures, with more young people than ever before needing support for their mental health and many facing long waits for help.
