Welcome to Chasetown Community School
We are situated in spacious grounds in a quiet area of Chasetown adjacent to open land a mile South of Burntwood Town Centre. We are a co-educational school, administered by Staffordshire County Council, admitting pupils from 7-13 years of age with social, emotional and mental health needs.
At Chasetown Community School we value our partnership with parents, families, professionals and members of our local community. We believe that establishing a close working relationship between school and home is very important. This benefits the child as it enables a sense of security and well-being.
We strive to create a happy, welcoming and secure environment. We want to work with families and carers to develop the full potential both academically, behaviourally and on a personal level of all the children in our care.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people/vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
All staff posts are subject to a safer recruitment process which includes enhanced criminal record and barring check, scrutiny of employment history, robust referencing and other vetting checks.
Our safeguarding system is underpinned by a range of policies and procedures which encourage and promote safe working practices across Chasetown Community School. On joining, staff are required to undergo continuous professional development to maintain safe working practices and to safeguard our children and young people.
School hours for children are Monday to Thursday 8:50- 3:25 and Friday 8:50-2:25 (31:55 total hours per week)
Children brought to school by their parents/carers should arrive by 8:50am and will leave at 3:15pm Monday to Thursday and 2:15pm on Fridays.
Children arriving by Taxi should arrive between 8:50am – 9:00am and will leave at 3:25pm Monday to Thursday and 2:25pm on Fridays
