WHY QUEEN’S PARK ACADEMY?
At Queen's Park Academy we emphasise the importance of kindness,
civility, and inclusivity in a text-rich, teacher-led learning
environment. We want our pupils to leave our primary schools equipped for
success in the next stage of their educational journey, and to achieve this we
teach an academic curriculum enhanced by an entitlement to enrichment for all.
We prioritise the teaching of powerful knowledge in our curriculum; knowledge
that is transformational, taking children beyond learning that can be easily
acquired through their everyday experience, and providing them with the tools
they need to make sense of and navigate the world around them as educated
We prioritise providing a transformational education for the children
and young people in our care, and we are looking for great people with the
knowledge and skills to support us in achieving this aim.
We believe in pro-actively supporting pupils to successfully achieve
high standards of conduct, resulting in very high expectations, and a calm and
consistent learning environment where pupils feel safe, valued and can
thrive. We think this makes for a warm and happy school, where teachers
can teach and pupils can learn, but moreover enables us to give pupils the
foundations they need to lead happy and fulfilling lives.
ABOUT ADVANTAGE SCHOOLS
are aspiration, honesty and respect and our vision is
to create a family of exceptional schools, within which students are empowered
and supported to achieve extraordinary outcomes. We currently run four schools
in Bedfordshire – Bedford Free School (secondary, Ofsted outstanding), Houstone
School (secondary, not yet inspected), Elstow School (primary, Ofsted good) and
Queen’s Park Academy (primary, Ofsted good) – with a fifth school (primary)
joining us imminently. Our pupils will leave our schools prepared for a
fulfilling life, including the opportunity to go to a great university and
pursue the career of their choice. To achieve this, our network of schools
teach an academic, knowledge-rich curriculum enhanced by an entitlement to
enrichment for all.
lessons are the foundation for progress for all learners. We know that gains in
learning can differ between classrooms and schools, with “some teachers
producing 1.5 years of gain in achievement while others with equivalent
students produce only half a year of gain.” (Hanushek, 2011). The effects of
high-quality lessons, including excellent teaching, are especially significant
for learners from disadvantaged backgrounds, with the “teacher effect” having
more impact on pupils with “low socio-economic status” (Nye, 2004). At age 16,
the biggest attainment gap is between SEND and non-SEND learners (EEF, 2017)
and pupils identified with SEND consistently make less progress than other
pupils with the same starting points. (NAO, 2019). At Advantage Schools, we
strive to provide consistent high-quality across our schools through strong
classroom culture, and effective curriculum delivery underpinned by the science
of learning, to ensure pupil success is an entitlement, and does not come down
to luck. Our SENDCos are at the forefront of creating this culture and ensuring
the highest standards of teaching and learning are available to all pupils.
We believe great staff make a great school, so we look
after our colleagues well. We value hard work, but we do all we can to identify
and eliminate unnecessary workload that could result in burnout.
