In 2017, Rickey Park relaunched itself with a new logo designed by the children and a new slogan 'cracking the code of learning together' which reflects our close proximity and partnership with the famous Bletchley Park. In the same year, Rickley Park acquired a new leadership team - an experienced Headteacher who joined us in September 2017, and a Deputy Headteacher who started in April 2018 along with new core subject leads - all with a passion to raise standards and provide a world class curriculum. They work closely alongside a very committed Governing Body who challenge and support the team to ensure that all children receive a quality broad and balanced education.
For long term impact, change takes a little time and whilst we work daily to ensure that teaching is amazing, the curriculum is enviable and our children are happy, respectful, responsible and safe - 2020 is set to be the best year of results to date! Quick wins are great but Rickey Park children deserve a longer term vision in order to achieve sustained excellence.
The best evidence of a great school of course is talking to the children - their attitudes to learning are fantastic and they love coming to school! Good mental health is also our priority - however, this does not mean being happy all the time. Experiencing negative emotions is part of life and dealing with these effectively is what having a good mental health is all about. We are committed to supporting children through all situations and ensuring that they have the strategies to deal with these scenarios now and in later life. We have learning mentors in school who support children with social and emotional issues to enable our children to succeed at conflict resolution, now and in later life and we are trialing meditation this term as a behavioural regulation technique. We kindly ask that parents support us in supporting their children - a close partnership is essential to success.
This is a great school - and we are proud to be one wonderful family of learners.
Welcome to something special.
