Headteacher's Welcome

At Chenderit School we have established a strong and supportive community where staff and students strive to "Aim High, Work Hard and Be Nice". Our students are valued as individuals and are actively encouraged to pursue excellence, not only academically, but in all other spheres of school life. Our aim is to unlock each student's potential and to celebrate every individual's progress and achievements.

Chenderit School is a forward looking school with proud traditions. We encourage our students to embrace all opportunities at school and, through these, to develop into increasingly resilient, independent, adaptable, respectful and resourceful learners. We have high expectations of our school community and pride ourselves on our safe, supportive yet challenging environment in which students are able to enjoy, flourish and achieve.

 I hope you find the information you are looking for on our website and that it gives you a flavour of what is unique and special about our school. If you are considering whether Chenderit School is the right school for your child, please contact us for more information or, better still, arrange a visit to meet our staff and students and to experience our welcoming atmosphere, our sense of purpose and the wide variety of opportunities that Chenderit has to offer.

Student mental health and well-being

09 Jan 2018

Good mental health and a positive sense of well-being enable students to function well at school and meet the demands of everyday life. For this reason, we have recently updated the parent safeguarding tab and introduced a student well-being tab to include additional advice and guidance about specific mental or emotional health issues. These can be found at:

» Children's Society

» Chenderit - Well-being

Our in-school structure for managing safeguarding is robust. Should you have any concerns regarding safeguarding including emotional and mental health, please contact Mrs Jan Hooper on 01295 711567 ext 263 (jhooper@chenderit.northants.sch.uk) or Mr Roddy Lloyd-Jones on 01295 711567 ext 242 (rlloyd-jones@chendert.northants.sch.uk) or Mrs Allison Smith on 01295 711567 ext 262 (asmith@chenderit.northants.sch.uk) in the first instance.

At Chenderit, we continue to have a multi-disciplinary approach to achieving positive outcomes for our students and we are in regular contact with all key agencies involved in promoting the welfare and safety of the children and young people at our school.
