School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Leaders provide a purposeful and welcoming school that reflects your commitment to providing the very best for your pupils. Your evaluation of the school’s strengths and weaknesses is honest and accurate. This has supported you to implement a number of school improvement strategies that have further strengthened the provision for pupils. Since the last inspection, the school has moved to a new building that better suits pupils’ needs. As a result, pupils are calmer and able to be more independent around the school. You have also made substantial changes to your timetable in response to the changing needs of your pupils. Previous areas for development have been addressed effectively and strategically. You now have a more personalised curriculum that takes into account individual pupils’ interests, aspirations and skills. Staff are overwhelmingly positive about the school, and report a sense of pride and belonging. They feel that they have the support of school leaders and that the school is well managed. Effective teaching across the school has enabled pupils to learn skills that are then widely applied in the local community. Although your pupils travel to the school from many London boroughs, you have strong relationships with parents. Events, such as your summer party, are incredibly well attended. This demonstrates the widespread sense of belonging to the school community that you have created.

Parayhouse School Parent Reviews

Average Parent Rating

“Wonderful school”

Parayhouse is a wonderful school. My daughter moved from mainstream a year ago and I was worried about the distance she would have to travel here but it is worth it. The school is a positive, caring , inclusive community. The children are at the heart of everything and the staff are committed, friendly, professional and inspirational. Communication between school and parents is good. My child loves school, is making good progress, has made friends and is more independent. Every time I visit the school, everyone's is smiling. The children are treated as individuals and progress is monitored well. The children go on a wide range of trips and activities including a residential every year. My child is more independent and is progressing with her learning in a supportive environment. We are very happy with the school.
