School Improvement

Chaucer School is constantly striving towards first class outcomes at all levels for students. Leaders at all levels work hard to lead the school to help all our students to fulfil their life chances and dreams.

School improvement comes from a culture of reflection, both inward and outward looking; from a relentless drive to first class outcomes at all levels; from an embedded system of seeking and listening to stakeholder voice. We seek and value honest and developmental critique from external partners to help us develop quickly as a school for the students who are with us now, and for the future.

We believe that the foundations are now in place to build Chaucer School’s first class service to the students, families and community we support. We aim to lead a growing legacy of respect, responsibility and kindness that spreads across our community as our young people move through each stage of their lives.

Chaucer School is a member of the Tapton School Academy Trust, and we wholly support the trust mission for all schools to provide a safe place to be, provide great teaching and learning, and create an environment where all opportunities are within reach. We’re strong supporters of the Trust belief that we are ‘Better Together,’ and genuinely benefit from close partnership with other primary and secondary schools in the Trust.

We work closely with our local family of primary schools: Meynell, Southey Green, Parson Cross and Hillsborough.

We’re proud to work collaboratively with the many agencies and authorities within Sheffield that support the community in all aspects of our students’ lives.

We also work in direct partnership with Tapton School Sixth Form, Longley Park and Sheffield College, giving excellent opportunities for progression into post-16 learning, and are proud of the increasing levels of aspiration from our students to build successful lives and fulfil their dreams.
