Our Values and Vision

Our values are incorporated in the phrase ‘Proud of ourselves, proud of our school’ which can be seen prominently around the Academy.

Chobham seeks to help our students develop as individuals who are sustained by an intrinsic sense of pride and a recognition of their own worth as human beings.  Many Chobham students come from challenging backgrounds and work hard to get to school and to succeed here.  All of our students make a unique contribution and all have much to celebrate in their lives and talents.  Our aim as a school is to help our students recognise, appreciate and fulfil their individual and collective gifts.

Amongst the values we promote most in our community are:

At Chobham Academy, we wish to assist the development of our students in four key areas:

  • Academic - achieving the best examination outcomes they are capable of.
  • Learning - developing curiosity and a true love of learning. We want Chobham students to be equipped with skills to help make them confident and effective life-long learners.
  • Social - helping students acquire the social skills and attitudes which will help them to form effective relationships both within and beyond school. These include excellent communication skills and the ability to be polite and friendly in any environment.
  • Citizenship - we want our students to become active young citizens who have an informed social conscience and who take an interest in the world around them.

Amongst the values we promote most in our community are:

  • Dignity - all Chobham students are encouraged to care about themselves; this includes how they feel about themselves and appreciating how others see them.  We want all of our students to understand that they are uniquely important and believe that by appreciating this they will learn more and contribute more to their community
     
  • Respect for others - students are encouraged to reflect upon the effects of what they say and do upon others.  We ask students to consider how the conscious and unconscious behaviour of others impacts upon them and help them to moderate their own actions accordingly
     
  • Sharing - we want all members of the Academy community to be generous, with words and in their actions.  Whenever we discover a member of our school community or wider community to be in need, Chobham students are encouraged to step in and help out
     
  • Encouraging - Chobham aspires to be a community where students and staff look out for each other and support one another.  We want our language and actions to be consistently encouraging so that all members of the community feel secure and valued and are inspired to give their best
     
  • Supporting and celebrating the achievement of others - we want our students to be modest yet feel pride in their achievements.  We do not want them to feel awkward or embarrassed about being successful.  To help accomplish this, all members of the Chobham community are encouraged to celebrate the successes of others both formally and informally.  We aspire to a culture where generously acknowledging the wide ranging achievements of our students is the norm.

These values are embedded in our six Chobham pillars upon which our outlook and behaviours are based:

  • Excellence – being exceptional in everything we do
  • Respect – being dedicated to mutually rewarding relationships
  • Integrity – being true to ourselves and our work
  • Innovation – being creative and challenging in our approach
  • Collaboration – being one team
  • Trust – being open and transparent

At Chobham, we want to create an environment where all students are happy, appropriately challenged and stimulated, and feel able to fulfil their potential.  The things that make our vision distinctive are:

  • All Chobham students will achieve a broad range of exceptional educational opportunities
  • The different talents of our students are recognised, cultivated and celebrated
  • Students are helped to understand moral issues and recognise the difference between right and wrong.  Our students are encouraged and supported in speaking up for what they believe to be right
  • Students are enabled to succeed in whichever areas they possess talent and have a desire to achieve
  • All students are supported in making as much academic progress as they are capable of and in achieving as highly as they can
  • All students are recognised as unique individuals and enabled to express themselves in an articulate way
  • Our students will possess good levels of knowledge and have a broad cultural, scientific and historical awareness
  • Our students will be active young citizens who take responsibility and are considerate towards others
  • Chobham students should be creative thinkers, capable of taking risks in their learning and studying independently
  • Students will be socially adept and confident when meeting new people
  • Students will be environmentally aware and knowledgeable global citizens
  • Our students will have a commitment to equality and inclusivity and embrace diversity

To help us achieve our ambitions we aim to make the following provision a typical experience for all students at Chobham:

  • Great teaching and learning
  • Strong and supportive relationships with fellow students and staff
  • A diverse range of enrichment activities and trips
  • A safe and secure environment where young people can express themselves with confidence
  • Outstanding role modelling from adults in the Academy community
  • A range of external speakers and mentors
  • An inspiring learning environment
  • A broad and exciting curriculum that meets the needs and aspirations of all students.

An inclusive school

Chobham is a school where all students are recognised as individuals and appreciated for their own unique personality and talents. At Chobham everyone is encouraged to be the best they can be and nobody is allowed to fail.

We are a richly diverse inner London community and a robustly comprehensive school. At Chobham difference is celebrated and everyone is welcome. Within our school community, no one is overlooked. Our house and tutor systems ensure that all students are known and their achievements recognised.

Students are encouraged to give their own views in a reasoned way and to do their best to understand, and always respect, the views of others. Our Student Council and Curriculum Advisors give structured routes for every student to contribute their opinions.

At Chobham, we do believe that schools have a role to play in guiding young people to develop morals which help them to lead a healthy, happy life and through their actions to benefit others. Our assembly and PSHE programmes and the frequency and quality of day to day discussion between staff and students helps our students to think in a community centred way.

Mutual respect and tolerance are integral elements of our school culture at Chobham. We promote an inclusive approach to issues surrounding disability, race and ethnicity, religion/belief, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, age, marriage/civil partnerships and parenthood. The Academy has a zero tolerance approach towards bullying.

Students are helped to understand the attitudes and beliefs that are protected by law and form part of British values. These values are not just taught but are embedded in our school life and ethos. British values include; individual liberty, the rule of law, democracy, tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs, mutual respect and awareness and tolerance of communities which are different to their own. This helps prepare our students for life in modern Britain, giving them the confidence to support one another and to challenge discrimination and extremist attitudes. This philosophy also underpins the academic curriculum and is taught through every subject.
