A message from the Executive Headteacher
Abbey Park Federation of schools includes an outstanding Pre – School, a teacher led Nursery, a First school and a Middle school offering excellent educational provision for children aged 2 – 12. The schools share a spacious site opposite the Abbey in the beautiful town of Pershore.
I have recently been appointed as Executive Head over the Federation and feel privileged to be leading these wonderful schools. I have been teaching since 1994 and have taught in primary, middle and secondary schools, latterly as head of a primary school in Oxfordshire. I am excited by the challenge of leading the federation ensuring all of our children achieve the best possible outcomes.
In our federation of schools every child is supported to reach their personal and academic potential within a nurturing yet challenging environment. Children in all schools are taught by inspirational, passionate staff that are relentless in their drive to ensure children make progress and are happy in their learning. All children are appropriately challenged at their level and experience a rich, varied curriculum with many enrichment and extracurricular activities and opportunities including trips abroad.
Children in the first and nursery school are class based and taught through an exciting topic led curriculum. Children join the middle school at the beginning of year 5 with children from other local first schools. Middle school education provides specialist teaching in specialist areas such as the science laboratory, the design technology and cookery suite as well as a dedicated ICT suite.
Abbey Park prides itself on excellent pastoral care where all staff work closely with parents / carers in ensuring all children are ready and happy to learn. The school encourages parents / carers to discuss their children’s needs whenever needed.
I would love to show any prospective families around our site – please do get in touch.
Safeguarding Children, including Child Protection, at Abbey Park Schools Federation
This school believes that it is always unacceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind. We recognise our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children.
We will provide staff and volunteers with guidance to follow when they suspect a child may be experiencing abuse or at risk of harm. We will work co-operatively with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first – unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
