School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You have a strong vision that the school should be highly inclusive and serve your locality well. Recent expansion has resulted in a diverse range of pupil backgrounds, and leaders are determined that all pupils and their families are welcomed into the school community. You have relaunched the school ethos as ‘Be respectful, be responsible and be safe’, which has been embraced by pupils. Pupils told me, ‘People are kind here and we are a community.’ One teacher said, ‘We really care about the children and our school is a sanctuary.’ A parent remarked, ‘I like the mix of children at the school, with families from all different backgrounds.’ After a dip in performance in 2016, you and your senior staff wasted no time in finding out how to improve the school quickly. Working closely and effectively with the local authority and the local network of headteachers, leaders pooled expertise to rectify shortcomings in teaching and learning. Results in 2017 showed that this work has been successful, with pupils making progress in reading, writing and mathematics close to national averages. Nevertheless, leaders are not complacent and know that there is work to do to improve standards further. Self-evaluation is accurate, as leaders know the school’s strengths and areas for development. Most areas requiring improvement from the last inspection have been tackled successfully, including improving the quality of teaching. Parents and carers say their child is taught well. Leaders identify that the effectiveness of behaviour management is an area to improve. This is because the school demographic change means that there are increasing numbers of pupils with complex social, emotional and behavioural needs joining the school. Pupils say that most of their peers are well behaved and, if a classmate needs help with their behaviour, adults are ‘kind and sort it out’. Teachers I spoke with reflected on the new policy and said, ‘We now have a culture of positivity.’ During the inspection, pupils behaved very well and showed respect towards adults and each other. The staff response to the online questionnaire shows that the new way of working regarding behaviour management is not yet embedded across all members of the school community. A member of staff who said in their questionnaire response that ‘staff need more support and training’ confirms your view that the management of pupils’ complex behavioural needs continues to be a key priority area to work on. Governors carry out their role in ensuring that the school follows statutory guidelines well. They visit the school regularly to see the school for themselves and meet pupils, staff and parents. Governors receive headteacher reports that have recently provided additional helpful analysis so that governors can ask searching questions about trends and patterns in pupils’ attendance. Governors are currently undertaking staff and parent surveys so that they can strengthen communication and receive views directly for consideration. The vast majority of parents are supportive of the school and the education their child receives. Almost all parents would recommend the school to others. Out of many positive comments from parents responding to the online questionnaire, one said: ‘I highly recommend Queens Park’s School and can confirm my daughter has had a great experience there and is achieving well.’ Safeguarding is effective. Leaders have established a strong culture of safeguarding that permeates the school. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose and successfully implemented. The school’s records show that all concerns about pupils are rigorously followed up in a timely manner. Leaders seek the support of other agencies when appropriate to ensure the safety of the pupils in their care. Staff have regular training so that they are knowledgeable about how to keep pupils safe from risks such as radicalisation and child sexual exploitation. Pupils say that their school is a safe place and they feel well cared for. They say that bullying is extremely rare and that, should there be any friendship issues, they get sorted out quickly. The vast majority of parents responding to the questionnaire say their child is safe at the school.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.
