What is it like to attend this school?
Flora Gardens is a joyful place to learn. Pupils are exceptionally polite and welcoming. They are proud of their school. The highly respectful relationships between staff and pupils help to create a convivial atmosphere.
Pupils have a clear understanding of what constitutes bullying. They insist that there is no bullying here because everyone is kind. Comments from pupils such as, ‘the value of respect means we just wouldn’t do it,’ are typical. Staff are quick to sort out any friendship issues if they happen.
The school’s values underpin leaders’ approach to behaviour. Staff understand and apply the behaviour system. For example, they reward pupils with house points. Classroom routines are well established. Right from early years, children show a high level of interest in their learning. Playtimes are harmonious. Pupils have fun with the learning that staff plan for them.
Leaders and governors are ambitious for all pupils to excel. The curriculum that leaders have designed enables all pupils to learn a range of subjects successfully. Leaders offer a wide range of clubs, from quidditch to drama and circus skills to ecoclub. There is something for everyone, and pupils take part in these activities with enthusiasm.

Parent View is an online facility that allows parents and carers to give their views about their child’s school at any time of the school year. The questionnaire is also the main mechanism for parents to give their views to inspectors about their child’s school at the time of a school inspection.
The questionnaire can be accessed directly at https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk or from the home page of Ofsted’s website www.ofsted.gov.uk.
To register on the Parent View site, parents must initially enter an email address, and confirm that they are a parent or carer. They will also be asked to clarify how many schools their children attend (allowing for different children at different schools). Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc.
Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.
