The Chafford School Mission Statement

"Achievement for all through the pursuit of excellence"

This statement encapsulates the key elements of our mission as a school.  It crystallises our vision, which is to imbed a culture of success into the fabric of the educational process at The Chafford School.
Our vision encompasses not only the school, but also the wider community, so that it too shares our ambitious, yet achievable future.
Exceptional levels of ICT provision will permeate the curriculum of The Chafford School.
We will use Business and Enterprise college status as a springboard to raise levels of achievement still higher.
We recognise the essential contribution of Business and Enterprise to the world in which we live, and this is central to our curriculum.

"Pupils enjoy coming to school because they feel secure in a supported, disciplined environment"  (OFSTED)

We place a high priority on pastoral care at The Chafford.  A teamof Year Heads, each with a deputy to assist them, liaises closely with form tutors to provide leadership, guidance and support for all students.  The Head of Year 7 is static to allow good liaison with the primary schools. Other Year Heads move up through the school with their year group.  The work of the Pastoral Team is co-ordinated by a member of the Leadership Team, who has the support of the Senior Pastoral Tutor.

The Chafford School aims to provide continuity in students' education through regular contact with partner primary schools.

When new Year 7 students arrive they have already met Year 8 'Buddies' who will be their guides through the first year and beyond.

Bullying is not tolerated.  We have an Anti-Bullying Committee of the School Council as well as a group of students who are trained as peer mentors. These students are linked to Year 7 tutor groups to provide support whenever necessary.

School life can sometimes be challenging for students - as they settle in or during exams, for example. We recognise this and provide additional support in the form of Learning Mentors and a Family Support Worker. Regular meetings are offered where parents can come and find out about educational issues in a friendly atmosphere.
