Values and vision
Chingford Foundation School strives to understand each student’s individuality. The school firmly believes this is the key to promoting good learning habits and the development of the personal qualities needed in an increasingly complex society.
Chingford Foundation School's strong approach to rewards and sanctions demonstrates its intention to ensure distractions are kept to a minimum and students are "ready to learn". The school's belief that boys learn differently from girls informs the way it organises learning for its students.
“The sixth form is outstanding. The curriculum matches the needs of the students extremely well and they make substantial and sustained progress. This has led to rapid improvement in outcomes. The majority of students make good progress throughout the school and achievement in English is particularly strong. Levels of attainment have been rising steadily. Teaching has improved steadily and is good. High quality support and robust systems for performance management have aided this. The behaviour of students in lessons and around school is good.”
