Old Park Values

We are proud to have achieved the Values Quality Mark in 2018.

“Old Park is a thriving school where VbE clearly underpins their behaviour, curriculum and relationships. All children are well supported to ensure they reach their full potential. Staff are valued and cared for and are totally committed to the school’s VbE philosophy and approach.  The holistic development of each and every child is the key to the school’s success and due to this, children make excellent progress across the curriculum. Old Park are forward thinking, open to new suggestions and reflective of their practices. I will be encouraging other Midland schools to visit and witness the excellent practice I have been fortunate enough to observe.”
