An Inclusive Ethos

An Ethos That Celebrates Who We Are And Where We Live

Chobham_Page_Images_18At Chobham Academy Primary we value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate these. We have found this approach to be enriching for all parties as it teaches tolerance and respect for the differences in our community and the wider world.

Every week we share a research question of the week with a focus on various topics based on different traditions, cultures and spiritual and moral questions. We always have 3 ‘Scholars of the Week’ who have demonstrated extra effort in their studies and taken the initiative to carry out independent research.

In Year 6, pupils undertake an intense topic about the Victorians and the difference in life then and now. They visit the Ragged School Museum to experience a day in the life of a Victorian child. The children use a voting system to elect the Student Parliament Prime Minister and Deputy.

In Year 5, the pupils have been studying British art and in particular landscape and attractions of northern cities. They also look at the Tudors and this period in British history. This year group will also have the opportunity to listen to some Christian speakers who will be invited into lessons to share ideas about their beliefs.

In Year 4, pupils study WWII and how children lived in war times compared to now. They look at how their local area has changed since the blitz and how it may have been effected as a result. They also look at local places of worship and famous Britons for example some famous astronauts and Olympians.

In Year 3 as part of the PSHE the class will be looking at interactions with other people to enable the pupils to become better communicators.  Then it progresses to tackle aspects of safety that may occur when the children are out and about: personal safety; road safety; fire safety and firework safety. They will also look at seasonal festivities.

In Year 2, there is a strong focus on the Great Fire of London and the history behind it. The art and music is also linked to the Fire of London. Within DT the pupils in Year 2 also look at famous buildings and architecture in London. In RE the children look at the reasons for eating different types of foods.

In Year 1, pupils study their local area and compare it to different places. They also look within RE at why Christians celebrate Christmas. Year 1 also study the book ‘Beegu’ which allows the pupils to explore the experiences of refugees and newly-arrived people in Britain.

As a whole school, so far this year we have celebrated Black History Month, Diwali and we will be participating in Children in Need Day, Anti-bullying week, Enterprise week and many more events. Later on in the year we will celebrate Christmas as well as Chinese New Year and many other festivals and celebrations.

On a more general level, the school undertakes weekly assemblies which uphold our Chobham pillars and values of respect, collaboration, trust, innovation, excellence and integrity. These are also taught within formal PSHE and RE lessons and on an informal nature throughout the school days. Each term we have a focus pillar and whole school PSHE focus.

Ready, steady, go


Each year the children discuss their class rules and the rights associated with these. All the children contribute to the drawing up of a ‘what makes a good learner’ display.

Children have many opportunities for their voices to be heard. We have a Student Parliament which meets every week to discuss issues raised in class and around school. The children have elected their own Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister. We have year 6 School Prefects and Playground Companions who ensure that all of our children are happy during play times and lunchtimes.

The Rule of Law

The importance of Laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced throughout regular school days, as well as when dealing with behaviour and through school assemblies. Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind our school laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. We will be arranging visits from authorities such as the Police and Fire Service to help reinforce this message.

Individual Liberty

Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. As a school we educate and provide boundaries for young pupils to make choices safely, through provision of a safe environment and empowering education.  Pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and advised how to exercise these safely, for example through our E-Safety and PSHE lessons. Whether it be through choice of learning challenge, of how they record, of participation in our extra-curricular clubs and opportunities, pupils are given the freedom to make choices.

Mutual Respect

One of the Chobham Pillars is ‘respect’ and part of the Academy ethos and behaviour policy has revolved around the pillar of respect and collaboration. Our weekly celebration assemblies reinforce this ethos. We discuss the growth mind-set with the pupils and the fact that it’s important to get things wrong so that we learn. We are respectful and tolerant of our peers who may need more support.

Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs

Chobham is situated in an area which is greatly culturally diverse and we place a great emphasis on promoting diversity with the children. Our whole school question of the week is often planned to address this as well as our celebration days throughout the year from a variety of faiths and cultures. Our RE and PSHE teaching reinforce this. Members of different faiths or religions are encouraged to share their knowledge to enhance learning within classes. Children visit places of worship that are important to different faiths, for example year 3, in the first term, visit a Hindu Temple.

Throughout the school we will actively challenge behaviours or attitudes that are insensitive, inflammatory, bullying or which seek to isolate, exclude or differentiate between people within our school community.
