Community involvement at Merstham Park School

As a school serving the whole community, we need to ensure our educational offer reflects differing abilities and aptitudes through individual learning plans. We will not accept low ambitions or expectations as part of our community. We want to open the minds of our students to possibilities and inspire them to believe they can achieve amazing things, whatever profession they choose. We encourage and invite a range of successful local residents from a wide range of professions to come in and talk to our students about their experience. We will have lawyers, journalists, teachers, charity leaders, artists, doctors and small business owners.

Why does Merstham Park value community involvement?

At Merstham Park School, we believe that the school, parents, and the community should work together to promote the health, well- being and learning of all students. When the school actively involve parents and engages community resources, they are able to respond more effectively to the health-related needs of students. Community involvement fosters partnerships among schools, family and community groups, and individuals. These partnerships result in sharing and maximising resources. In addition, they help students develop healthy behaviours and promote healthy families. We facilitate opportunities for our students to understand our collective responsibility to lead law-abiding lives as a British citizen.

Merstham Park School’s promise to the community

  7. Will encourage business partnerships to assist students in the successful transition to employment or further education.
