Welcome to our school website and to Headley Park Primary School – part of the Cathedral Schools Trust. Working as Head Teacher of this wonderful school is a tremendous privilege. Our children are fantastic, our staff are brilliant and we have a strong and active community of parents, friends and colleagues who all pull together to give our children the best possible education and experience of school. Safeguarding of our pupils is at the heart of everything we do (see link to policy on this page). Feedback from parents is very important to us (see March 2017 survey results) and it is great that 98% of those who answered said they would be happy to recommend the school and saw it as a safe place for their children. Please speak to your teacher or me if you have any concerns. If you wish to make a formal complaint please use the form in the online policies section.
Ofsted gave the school an outstanding grade in 2013. In particular they said that children were safe and:
- Behaviour is excellent across the school because of the consistent approach to behaviour management and the mutual respect that exists between pupils and adults.
- The school’s systems for ensuring that teachers always deliver high quality lessons are very robust. The proportion of high quality teaching has increased since the previous inspection. The school provides excellent professional development for all staff.
- Pupils are extremely articulate, polite and confident. They are proud of their school and are very keen to progress in their learning.
