There is a strong link between mental health and bullying. Young people who have experienced bullying are more likely to experience mental health issues and those who have mental health issues are more likely to be bullied. https://t.co/AWXu6sKOzr

Students learning about tilting and toppling in physics, this method of dual coding works really well as students understand the concepts through the combination of visual and verbal processing. It also improves students' retention of information. https://t.co/y0gvsVjIs3

Our Vision

6 290 eChobham 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

2 578 e

At the heart of our Chobham ethos is the passionate belief that all students are uniquely valuable and all students have the right to succeed in their education. We believe that it is our job to ensure this happens and that all students, regardless of who they are, leave primary school happy, confident and ready to succeed in their next phase of life.

Our school is in the heart of the borough of Newham. We are proud to be a part of a richly diverse inner London community. At Chobham, our differences are not only celebrated but actively discussed and learnt about. Our school community is a warm and welcoming environment in which staff, students and families are known and valued.

At Chobham, we believe that guided discussions and plenty of ‘talk for learning’ is central to students’ academic and social growth. Students are encouraged to give their own views in a reasoned way and to do their best to understand, and always respect, the views of others. In all of our primary classrooms, children are given regular opportunities to practice and manage this skill.

Also central to our Chobham ethos is the belief that schools have a duty to guide students moral as well as academic development. We strive to ensure that our students understand their responsibilities in the community and the wider world and grow to develop morals which help them to lead a healthy, happy life and through their actions benefit others. We use our assembly and PSHE programme as well as a regular schedule of extra-curricular events and fundraising activities to support this learning. Also key to our students understanding in this area is the frequency and quality of day to day discussion between staff and students, which helps them to think in a responsible and community centred way.

Mutual respect and tolerance are integral elements of our school culture at Chobham. We promote an inclusive approach to issues surrounding disability, race and ethnicity, religion/belief, sexual orientation, gender, age, marriage/civil partnerships and parenthood. Our PSHE curriculum seeks to actively teach understanding in these topic areas in a sensitive and age-appropriate manner. The Academy has a zero-tolerance approach towards bullying.

Students are helped to understand the attitudes and beliefs that are protected by law and form part of British values. These values are not just taught but are embedded in our school life and ethos. British values include; individual liberty, the rule of law, democracy, tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs, mutual respect and awareness and tolerance of communities which are different to their own. This helps prepare our students for life in modern Britain, giving them the confidence to support one another and to challenge discrimination and extremist attitudes. This philosophy also underpins the academic curriculum and is taught through every subject.

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.
