Mrs Tanner says:
I am delighted to share with you our latest report from Ofsted (2019). The report identifies the high quality of education and the outstanding care that Queenswood offers.
The school's mission statement is "to offer our children a balanced education in a quiet, caring environment in which they are able to reach their full potential, both academically and as people".
I am delighted that the report recognises that:
"The headteacher has a strong vision for the school, working with staff and pupils to bring it to life effectively."
Queenswood School's Ofsted success is a testimony to the hard work and dedication of each member of the school community. As headteacher I have a passionate enthusiasm to drive forward my vision for the school: this report is an official endorsement of that vision, celebrating what we have achieved and giving us pointers to move forward for further growth. My vision is that Queenswood provides an outstanding education for the children and helps equip them so that they will take up a useful place in society as confident, caring, thoughtful, thinking people. I am delighted how this is recognised in the report.
The report recognises the success of our community cohesion and our inclusive ethos. I was thrilled that the report points out that Queenswood School is a place where pupils demonstrate "self-worth and respect for others. They have a very well developed sense of right and wrong. They show deep understanding of others who come from different backgrounds to their own. Alongside their academic successes, pupils are very well prepared for life in modern Britain."
The partnership between staff, pupils and parents is of paramount importance: parents can trust that their child is respected and in the hands of caring professionals. It recognises the strength of relationships between staff and pupils:
"Teachers are ambitious for their pupils. They work with determination so that all pupils have positive experiences at school, can develop the personal skills that they need to thrive, and they can achieve high standards. As a result, pupils are motivated, they conduct themselves impeccably and they make strong progress."
Likewise we are proud that the report recognises:
"The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. They are thoughtful and considerate of each other. Pupils exude confidence as learners. They are willing to try out new ideas and make suggestions, which they articulate clearly. They are keen to improve their work step by step following their teacher's guidance. They value their education and have high aspirations for their futures."
For parents, sending a child to a fee-paying school is an enormous financial investment. To know that your child is safe, happy and secure is essential.
I am very proud of this report and equally proud of the children, the staff and the entire community of Queenswood School. I am sure, after reading the report, you will see just what a wonderful environment we have at Queenswood and be able to see how it will help your child to flourish.
