School Charter

The Blandford School Charter

This Charter forms the basis of our ethos at The Blandford School. It articulates our key values and promotes our collective responsibility to work towards a positive and progressive school community.

We ALL have a right…

To be safe at school and enjoy a safe, clean environment (Article 24)
To receive a good quality education with fair discipline that respects human dignity (Article 28)
To have a say about what we think should happen regarding decisions that affect us and to have our opinions taken seriously (Article 12)
To relax, play, meet with others and join groups and organisations. (Article 15, 31)

Therefore: We can respect these rights by…

Creating a safe environment in which everyone works together to prevent bullying
Listening and acting on concerns
Keeping our school clean
Working together to create a positive learning environment
Making the most of our learning opportunities and not disrupting the learning of others
Fully participating in school life, working hard and coming prepared for lessons
Following the school rules
Giving recognition for hard work
Expressing our opinions in a constructive way and listening to the views of others
Not judging or offending others and treating everyone with respect
Making the most of opportunities offered to us and taking part in extra curricular activities

URGENT Action to take if there is a positive Covid-19 test in your household over the Easter holiday

Dear Parent/Carer


Action to take if there is a positive Covid-19 test in your household over the Easter period

The latest Government advice is as follows:  where a student or staff member tests positive for coronavirus having developed symptoms more than 48 hours since being in school, the school should NOT be contacted.  Parents and carers should follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS Test and Trace.

If a student tests positive up to and including Wednesday, 7th April you must contact the school’s emergency number

07857 113728

Please provide the following information:

Name and year group of the student who has tested positive

Date of positive test

Date symptoms developed

Date student was last in school

Names of friends/contacts during school break and lunchtimes

The school will identify and contact families of close contacts during any lessons and tutor periods, and also families of any known social contacts provided by you.

Please leave your own contact details, including email and telephone number.

You do not need to contact the school if a member of your household tests positive, but you should follow the advice of NHS Test and Trace in terms of isolation required within your household.

I would like to thank the entire school community for your support and co-operation during this unusual and difficult half-term.

With best wishes for a restful half-term break,

Sally Wilson
