Our Vision and Values

Chobham_Page_Images_17Chobham Academy is a vibrant and outstanding centre of learning at the heart of East Village. The Academy is a place where every student makes exceptional progress and gains the skills, qualifications and attributes to enable them to go onto university, follow the career of their choice and make a positive contribution to their community and wider society.

Through our unwavering belief in the potential of every child we generate for students a transformative experience allowing them to forge ambitious lifetime aspirations and assist cultivate in them total self-belief: the belief that they can and will achieve excellence in education, they are worthy of greatness, and capable of and responsible for  serving the community.

All Chobham Academy students and staff will have the highest expectations of themselves and those around them.  Each day we will strive to do our very best, never accepting anything less and ensuring at all times we maintain a positive and enquiring mind, challenging ourselves to succeed and supporting those around us to do the same.

Chobham is recognised for its self-disciplined and well-mannered students who are respectful, courteous and who take pride in themselves, their academy and their community.

At Chobham we are keen to be at the centre of the growing and developing East Village community. The primary acadmy wants to be a school with a heart which develops children with self-confidence and high morals who care for and respect each other, their families and the staff at school. 

All 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.

Democracy
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.

Primary Student Leadership

Primary Prefects and Companions
There are 6 primary prefects and 6 primary companions. The pupils have various duties that they perform at break time and lunch and the pupils are rotated every half term in order to give pupils a chance to develop their leadership skills in a variety of situations. Duties consist of:

Dining Hall trays and tables – Help the pupils in the primary hall to put their trays back correctly and help to serve the water to the pupils.  Help keep the lines sensible and quiet.  Make sure all of the tables are kept clean and tidy.

Year 6 Companions – 6 pupils in 3 different zoned areas, in the playground, making sure all of the pupils are safe and playing with others. Pupils are a support for the younger pupils to talk to and play with. Companions can arrange and organise games for the younger pupils.

Inside stairs monitor – 2 pupils to stand on top of the inside stairs to ensure that children are behaving responsibly.

Outside stair monitor – 2 pupils to stand on top of the outside stairs to ensure that children are behaving responsibly.

Student Ambassadors
Every class at Chobham primary has two class ambassadors which are chosen and elected every half term. Our ambassadors welcome visitors to our academy courteously and informatively by talking to them about which class they are visiting and what their current learning is. Please feel free to ask our ambassadors any questions that you may have about our academy and our learning.
