Falinge Park High School

Opening Doors; Unlocking Potential

Head’s Welcome

Head’s Welcome

Janice-Allen-September-2016Welcome to Falinge Park

Our school is a warm, welcoming environment where children and staff are well cared for and supported. The excellent facilities are set in beautiful grounds overlooking the Pennine town of Rochdale – the birthplace of the Co-operative Movement. The facilities in the school are of the highest standard and pupils and staff have access to two sports halls, astro-turf, gym, fully equipped drama studio, music practice rooms, bright, airy classrooms and break-out hubs. The school building centres around our “Heart space.”

But a school and an education is about more than a building – it is about the people in the building – and we hope our website gives you a flavour of the soul of the school.

As a community, we are equally as proud of the child who achieves a string of A/A* as the child who overcomes significant barriers to achieve their personal best. Our examination results in 2016 showed a significant increase in the percentage of children achieving A-C in both English and Maths – up 12% to 62%. Our indicative Progress 8 figure places us at 0.2 – above average. We are proud of our children’s performance in external examinations in 2016 but we did not achieve these results at the expense of the children currently at the school. We are seeing standards rise in every academic year and we use external assessments to validate our approach. We are proud of our good Ofsted in 2013 and are committed to being a community school which serves a diverse community. Yet we know there is more we can do to ensure every child and adult at Falinge gets the best possible experience during their time here. To do this we have identified two objectives:

To create a COMPELLING LEARNING EXPERIENCE.

To create a COMPELLING CULTURE OF CREATIVITY AND CONSISTENCY.

We have agreed the best way to achieve this is by believing in people and their potential and by committing to positive relationships.

The actions we take to support this are based on the best professional research and underpinned by systematic, consistent evaluation and review. The positive ethos in the school is recognised by many visitors and in June 2016 an audit from the Teacher Development Trust commented, “Falinge Park High School have created a developmental and supportive culture for staff, where professional learning is prioritised…..It was genuinely exciting to see such a passion for teaching and learning.”

Underpinning all this is our resolute commitment to keeping children safe at Falinge and making sure they are happy, achieve their best and enjoy school.

But why don’t you see for yourself? If you would like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact the school office and speak to our staff. You are always welcome at Falinge.
