Working with the Community
Like many schools, Cheam Park Farm is at the heart of the community we serve and ideally placed to offer access to a range of extended services that can have a positive impact on standards and life chances of children, young people and families.
Independent evaluation and Ofsted have shown the positive impact extended services can have, including:
- improving pupil attainment, self confidence, motivation and attendance
- reducing exclusion rates
- enabling teachers to focus on teaching and learning
- enhancing children’s and families access to services
At Cheam Park Farm there is a range of extended services available to our pupils, including breakfast clubs, after school clubs and holiday clubs. For more information on these services, see Clubs and courses.
Cheam Park Farm Primary Academy is also used for a wide variety of activities by the local community, including local girl guiding groups and sports organisations.
