We promote independent effective learning tailored to our pupils’ needs.

This is vital to enable our pupils to grow in all aspects of their life and to prepare them for a bright and rewarding future. The pupils are encouraged to participate in their own individual target setting and personalised behaviour plans.

At CHS we have developed the SCORE model which we use as a behaviour tool to encourage positive interaction amongst our pupils.

The SCORE model underlines the broad approach to learning delivered at CHS and rewards the pupils for positive development

How does it work?

 

How to SCORE BIG

 

CHS runs a league system based on the Domestic and European football leagues where the pupils earn points for their behaviour, approach and understanding during the 24 hour curriculum using the score model above.

The different leagues give the pupils access to various activities with priority given to the pupils on the higher divisions. The points are collated at the end of the school week and the pupils are told of their league status in tutor time on a Monday.
