At Queensbridge Primary school the staff works collaboratively at all times, striving to develop a happy and harmonious environment for all members of the school community. Ideas are discussed and shared openly. The importance of creating whole school approaches and policies are seen as crucial to the clarity and smooth running of the school. We consider all members of the school community as learners. The pupils’ best interest must always be at the forefront of any discussions or decisions. A positive approach is essential, as is being an active and supportive member of a team.
We love music (2013/2014 Hackney Mayor’s Music Award winners), the arts (Arts Mark Gold 2014) and creativity. We lead on Restorative Justice, inclusion and well being. We also were the winners of the UBS Community Games. We are a lead school for Computing: Network of Excellence- computing at school.
We are currently also have Queensbridge and Mapledene Children’s Centre offering lots of local community support and extended services (including Stay and Play, Early Bird Programme, breast feeding support, Citizens Advice, Job Centre Plus, counselling, Happy at Home, the REAL project, ESOL and baby signing classes/ baby yoga and integrated 27 month health reviews). The centre also provides outstanding early years child care provision (Ofsted June 2014).
