Cheslyn Hay Academy School/Parent Charter

At Cheslyn Hay Academy, we believe that a strong partnership between the school and parents is crucial for the success and wellbeing of our students. This Parent Charter outlines our commitment to open communication, collaboration and shared responsibilities in nurturing the academic and personal potential of our students.


  • We will provide clear and timely communication through various channels, including email, Arbor, newsletters, the school website, and social media.
  • Parents are encouraged to reach out to teachers and staff with any questions, concerns or feedback, and we will respond promptly and respectfully. Please find our useful guide to communicating with Cheslyn Hay Academy here.
  • We will maintain our policy to welcome parents to engage in open discussions about their child's education, progress, and well-being.
  • Regular parent-teacher meetings will be organised to discuss student progress and address any concerns.

In doing so we ask our parents to:

  • Ensure that you update the school with any changes to your contact details
  • Take the time to read through all school communications
  • Attend Parents’ evenings and other meetings as necessary
  • Communicate directly and positively with the school to resolve any issues or concerns

Academic Excellence:

  • We are committed to delivering high-quality education that meets the academic needs of our students. Our teachers will provide engaging lessons, fair assessments and individualised support where necessary.
  • Parents are encouraged to support their child's learning journey by encouraging them to attend school each day, assisting with homework, attending parent-teacher meetings and fostering a positive attitude towards education.

Personal Potential:

  • We are dedicated to recognising and nurturing the unique talents and abilities of each student. We are committed to providing an environment where students can explore, develop and maximise their personal potential.
  • Our teachers and staff will work closely with students to identify their strengths, interests, and goals. We will provide guidance and opportunities to help students excel in their chosen areas.
  • Parents play a crucial role in this process by supporting their child's interests and aspirations. We encourage parents to engage in meaningful conversations with their child about their passions and goals.
  • Through a combination of academic support, extracurricular activities, and mentorship, we aim to empower students to become confident, capable individuals ready to pursue their dreams and contribute positively to society.

Partnership and Collaboration:

  • We view parents as our partners in their child's education. Collaborative efforts between parents and Cheslyn Hay Academy will create a supportive and enriching learning environment.
  • We will engage parents in school activities and events to foster a sense of community and involvement.
