"The main reason for Chelmer Valley remaining an outstanding school is the high quality of its leadership, management and governance. The school has a clear focus on improvement and this is supported by high expectations for all, and by rigorous and systematic approaches to evaluating its performance, the quality of teaching and learning, and the progress of individual students. As a result, teaching has improved so that more is now good or better, and students are fully engaged in their learning."
"Underpinning the success of the school is the outstanding care, guidance and support it provides for its students. The transition from primary schools to Year 7 is excellent and students settle in quickly."
"Students feel very safe in the school and the school's procedures for safeguarding students are outstanding"
Quotes from Ofsted Inspection Report 11th - 12th July 2011
"This is an incredible achievement for Chelmer Valley as this is the second time we have been recognised as Outstanding. We are the only non selective school in Mid Essex to have this accolade and it speaks volumes about everyone who is associated with this outstanding school." David Franklin
