Maple Tree Primary School has received a ‘Good’ rating after their first routine Ofsted inspection

Parkview Education are delighted to announce that during its first routine inspection Maple Tree Primary School has been rated Good by Ofsted!

Staff and leaders have high expectations. They have been very successful at integrating pupils into the school and re-engaging them in learning. Pupils talk enthusiastically about how adults help and support them.

Other positive findings highlighted in the Ofsted report included:

  1. The school provides a safe and consistent environment that enables pupils to settle well into learning and begin to thrive.
  2. Staff use pupils’ own interests to engage and enthuse them, but also ensure that pupils’ interests are broadened.
  3. Parents say that staff understand their children’s needs very well and adapt the learning to make it work for each individual.
  4. Parents appreciate the way that staff and leaders value their child and celebrate their strengths and successes.

We are all absolutely delighted with the result. There has been a great deal of hard work both by pupils and staff and we are pleased that Ofsted has recognised this. We do not see this as the end point of the journey, we will continue to strive to ensure that the learners at Maple Tree Primary School benefit from excellent teaching and learning.

Ivy Lodge receives a ‘Good’ rating from Ofsted at their 2022 inspection.

We are delighted to announce that the Ivy Lodge team has achieved an Ofsted rating of Good at its latest full inspection. The feedback from Ofsted reflects many of the positive outcomes our fantastic team continue to achieve every day at Ivy Lodge. Here is a summary of some of the key points highlighted at this latest inspection:

Children’s experiences are fun and enjoyable

One child goes horse riding, and another child enjoys trampolining and plays with a local football team. This enables children to build positive relationships with their peers.

Staff support the children to spend time with people who are important to them

The staff work closely with other professionals to ensure that the children’s time with families is positive. This helps children retain their identity and improves their self-esteem.

The house is welcoming and nurturing

The children are encouraged to express their individuality by choosing colour schemes and furniture for their bedrooms. This helps the children to develop a sense of belonging.

Staff understand the risks to children

Staff members understand the risks to children and are confident about strategies they use to increase their safety. Risk assessments are detailed and reviewed regularly.

The children have positive relationships with the staff

The staff understand when children may feel worried or anxious and help children to communicate their feelings. Consequently, children feel more confident to express their emotions.

A massive well done goes to the staff team at Ivy Lodge for their continual hard work and efforts!

Today Was Parkview Academy’s Remembrance Day of Respect and Reflection.

This year, Parkview Academy students paid their respects for Remembrance Day through reflection and celebration.  They joined over 200,000 children from over 1000 schools in a Live Remembrance Day Assembly across the country in a unique opportunity to join in a collective act of remembrance, standing silently to honour those that served their country in a two-minute silence. The students decorated their classroom doors as part of this reflection and took part in class discussions.

At Ivy Lodge, we threw a Halloween-themed party!

The team and children picked the scariest costume they could find to add the ‘spooky’ to the day!

We spent a day filled with Halloween-themed fun and games with piñatas, Halloween trivia, a toilet paper mummy competition, pumpkin carving and apple bobbing!

The spooky day was topped off with party food including finger hotdogs and of course toffee apples and sweets!

Our Deputy Manager at Ivy Lodge achieved her Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management with Children and Young People!

Tiff originally joined Parkview Care as a Team Leader in April 2021 and was soon promoted to Deputy Manager in October 2021.

We were so pleased to hear of her completing her Level 5 Diploma and we are looking forward to her future ventures with us!

Well done Tiff!

Parkview Care showed their support at the Tottenham game on Sunday!

We’re rooting for our favourite team to get through to the champions league this weekend!

Our home in Kent has been thinking of ways to get out and make its stamp on the local community.

During half term a day was planned with the young people and staff team to get out into the village and take part in an orienteering activity which included a litter pick.

Well done to all involved on having such a positive impact on the local community.

A massive congratulations to Team RC who pulled out all the stops finding all the items on their list and collecting a large bag of litter protecting the village wildlife.   

Our young people at The Cottage have been learning all about health and nutrition from our dedicated staff team.

As a result of discovering the benefits of growing your own vegetables, they thought it would be a great fun to try growing some of them. Our fantastic maintenance team were more than happy to build a vegetable patch in the garden and our young people spent a busy day over the weekend creating their veg patch.

Well done to all involved, we cannot wait to see the results of your hard work! 

At the beginning of 2022, we introduced our Core Values Awards, where we recognise those employees that have gone above and beyond and shown how they truly align with our core values.

The first Core Values Award was for the employee who showed they are ‘Passionate’ We asked staff for their nominations for an employee who has:

  • Taken pride in their work
  • Shown passion in learning
  • Looked to improve and innovate their practice,
  • Pushed themselves to be at their best
  • Focused on creating solutions and
  • Inspired others to make a difference through hard work, talent, and commitment

It made us proud to see so many nominations for a number of different staff members across the organisation and the reasons they were nominated for being ‘Passionate’. Having reviewed the nominations, there was one clear winner- ENZO who received the most nominations!

Nominations received stated Enzo shows passion for the homes by making sure the homes are well-kept and somewhere to be proud of.

Enzo always has a positive attitude, comes in with a smile on his face, makes others happy and has even offered to help out on shifts. Nominations complimented Enzo to say how he puts in 110% effort, often stays late to complete any tasks required and he always puts the needs of the young people first.

A massive well done to Enzo and all those nominated for the Parkview Core Values ‘Passionate’ award.

The nominations will soon be open for our Parkview Core Values ‘Accountable’ Award and we look forward to seeing our staff member’s positive comments and nominations for this category.
