Please click here for our most recent letter to parents and carers dated 25th March 2020.


We all have our part to play in helping to stop the spread of Coronavirus. This means we must stay at home to protect the NHS and help save lives.


Community Classrooms for vulnerable students and key workers’ children


Parents should keep children at home wherever possible and thanks to everyone across our community who has followed that advice. The fewer children making the journey to school and the fewer children in our Community Classrooms, the lower the risk of the virus spreading.


The purpose of our Community Classroom is to provide care for the children of key workers and children who are vulnerable. Only children in these categories can attend. Information on the list of key workers is here.


Any parents who meet the criteria and who want their children to attend the Community Classroom must let us know, giving details, otherwise we cannot guarantee places.


We will ask parents on a weekly basis tore-confirm if they want to continue using the Community Classroom in school.


We are working to maintain as much stabilityfor the students education as possible. Whilst it is not possible to fully replicate the educational experience at home, we are putting in place plans to make sure students can still access work and teachers are able to support their learning. Learning resources for each year group have been posted on our website and you and your children can email our staff for support. Staff email addresses can be found

We will update this page and keep in touch with parents and students via our website, texts and letters.



Please continue to follow health guidance.   



Thank you to everyone for your understanding during these challenging times and a heartfelt thanks to our NHS and key workers who are working so hard to look after us all.


If you need to contact the school, please phone 02392824204 and leave a voicemail. Voicemails are being forwarded to the relevant member of staff. Alternatively you can email



This is an unsettling and disruptive time for everyone and we will work together as a school and local community to face the challenging times ahead. Thank you for your support and understanding during these exceptional circumstances. If we can do anything more to help your family, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

SIAMS Inspection

Charter Academy is a Church of England School. Church schools are recognised for their distinctive Christian ethos and the impact this has on standards and all round education. Every five years Church of England schools will have a SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican an Methodist Schools) inspection. The SIAMS inspection focuses on 'How effective is the school's distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership, at all levels, enabling pupils and adults to flourish', . Inspectors will record whether or not the school meets the relevant statutory requirements, for collective worship and RE as well as a strong Christian ethos. As with Ofsted the main judgments will be rated on the scale as either Excellent, Good, Requires Improvement or Ineffective.

In June 2017 Charter had a SIAMS inspection.  The inspection was carried out by Portsmouth CofE diocese.  The diocese awarded Charter with a grading of Good.  The diocese gave targets for the school to further improve.  You can read the SIAMS report by clicking on the link.
