As a Rights Respecting Academy, we believe that all students are entitled to receive the best possible education. We are committed to providing an environment in which everyone can learn: a calm ordered learning community in which good teaching, praise, encouragement, rigour and structure can have positive effect. Chestnut Grove Academy provides a secure, caring and supportive environment which sets the highest standards of behaviour and personal conduct. The Academy has been consistently praised for its success in creating a harmonious ethos and we celebrate diversity and difference in both students and staff.
As a creative learning community we are committed to promoting understanding of the principles and practices of equality so that every member of the Academy community has the opportunity to achieve his or her potential. We are actively against discrimination of any kind and this is reflected in all our policies and practices. The Academy promotes mutual respect between children and adults within the school community and beyond; it is a place where every child matters and has the right to expect whatever is necessary for his or her development, academic and personal – including safety.
