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.

Half Term

22 Oct 2021

We have had a very positive start to the academic year and I thank you, as always, for your ongoing support both of your children and of Chenderit School.

 I hope students and families will take some time over the break to unwind and prepare for the half term ahead. 

COVID-19 testing during October half-term

Thank you for your continued support with Covid-19 home testing. We know how important it is for you to be able to send your child/ren to school.

You should encourage your child/ren to continue testing and report results twice a week, at home, throughout the October half-term school holiday and take a test before returning to school on 2nd November. All results should be reported, even if your result is negative or void.

Please help your children to take the test and report their results. Testing is free of charge and if you still require more home testing kits to continue testing over half term, you can order more online through gov.uk or collect kits from your local pharmacy. 

By testing your child/ren twice a week over half term, you will help us to reduce transmission of Coronavirus, keep your child/ren in school and Chenderit open to minimise disruption to their education, and to you and your household.

 Please contact Mrs R Brenchley, our COVID Coordinator, if you have any questions or concerns about home testing. 

 Thank you for your support.

 The staff of Chenderit School
