  • Relationships and Behaviour Policy updates

    Published 28/11/22

    Dear Parents and Carers

    We've reached a stage at Chaucer School where the time is right to update our behaviour systems and processes. I know from meeting with families, from listening to parent voice that we receive in person and online, from listening to students and from listening to staff, that the changes we are making are both sensible and desired as we move forwards in our journey of improvement for Chaucer School.

  • Ofsted Report

    Published 15/09/22

    We are disappointed by the outcome of the Chaucer School Ofsted inspection and do not feel that the report takes into account the full impact that the pandemic has had on our school and community.

    In a monitoring visit in March 2020 Ofsted found the school to be taking effective action in order for the school to become good. Covid-19 then caused two years of significant disruption to education, and hardship within the community.

    Our priority throughout this time has been the safety and welfare of everyone involved with our school and we are extremely proud of our students, staff and families for the resilience that they have shown.

    We will continue on our journey for excellence together at Chaucer School, and in our mission to realise the life chances and dreams of all our students.

    David Dennis (CEO, TSAT), Scott Burnside (Director of Secondary Education, TSAT) and Joanna Crewe (Headteacher, Chaucer School) – September 2022.

    Heatwave changes for Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th July 2022
    Due to the extreme changes, Tapton School Academies Trust are making the following changes to school on Monday and Tuesday.
    1. All trips and visits are postponed. This includes the rewards trip to Flamingo Land on Monday. We will rebook for September. 
    2. School will close at the beginning of period 4 - 12.55pm. If students need to stay in school until the end of the day due to travel arrangement needs, staff will be available in school to supervise them. Please ring or email school on to let us know if you will require your child to stay in school on either or both afternoons.
    3. Only cold food will be available at break and lunch. 
    3. Students are free to wear PE kit, and a hat. 
    4. Water will be available to students all day, so they should bring a refillable water bottle. 
    5. We are taking all possible steps with windows and blinds to keep rooms as cool as possible, and will be closely monitoring the situation room to room, rerooming to cooler spaces where necessary. 
    6. Activities in lesson will try to avoid creating additional heat, for example in Science, Food Technology, and in PE.
    We aim to keep all adults and children as safe and comfortable as possible in school. Thank you for supporting us as we manage this unusual situation together.
