Welcome Tarun Kapur

Chief Executive & Academy Principal

Andrew Griffin

Executive Principal

On behalf of the governors, staff and pupils may we introduce you to the school through our prospectus. This should give you a flavour of school life and outline our expectations of your child and what you should expect from us. Broadoak School is a very special school with an ‘Outstanding’ reputation which is founded on the Dean Trust motto:

The motivation provided by the staff is second to none. The success of the school is built upon a tradition of providing opportunities for children which makes them feel that they ‘can do’ and that no task is beyond them. Broadoak’s motto ‘Believe, Achieve, Succeed’, has been embraced by all of the schools in The Dean Trust. We have proved the power of these words with increasing exam results and praise in inspections. Since Broadoak’s initial federation with Ashton on Mersey in 2006, it has progressed from a ‘Satisfactory’ judgement to an ‘Outstanding’ judgement by Ofsted following the last inspection.

‘Believe Achieve Succeed’ “Relationships between staff and students are respectful and this results in good behaviour in lessons and around the school.” OFSTED 2011

Broadoak School has a great reputation for quality education, particularly within the fields of Applied and Vocational Education in which we are recognised as being outstanding practitioners nationally. Broadoak School was recognised annually by The Specialist Schools and Academies Trust as one of the nation’s most improved. In 2012 Broadoak School became an Academy and together with Ashton on Mersey School formed a new Multi Academy Trust - ‘The Dean Trust’. Both secondary schools share the same Governors and policies. The Executive Principal, Mr Andy Griffin was, for several years Assistant Principal at Ashton on Mersey School. The founding and lead school of the Dean Trust is Ashton on Mersey which holds a fifth consecutive ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted grading and, as shown by Broadoak’s ‘Outstanding’ grading in November 2011, we are committed to raising standards at all of our schools. The Trust is developing a family of schools and academies, with a collaborative learning culture, which provides the very best for every pupil

Leadership is the strength of the Trust. Our Chief Executive, Tarun Kapur CBE is a National Leader of Education as is Mrs Vicky Beer CBE, Executive Principal at Ashton on Mersey School. Andy Griffin, Executive Principal of Broadoak School is a Local Leader of Education. The Chairman of the Trust, Brian Rigby MBE is a National Leader of Governance.

“The headteacher and executive headteacher set extremely high expectations for their own performance and for everyone who works or studies in the school. They lead by personal example. Together, they enthuse and inspire staff, students and the local community.” OFSTED 2011

Broadoak’s strength is in adding value to pupils. The school received the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT) ‘Most Improved’ grading for 3 consecutive years. It has always had a high contextual value added score which looks at the progress a child makes. On last year’s Performance Tables Broadoak’s value added score was ranked third in the Local Authority behind Altrincham Girls’ and Altrincham Boys’ Grammar Schools.

Ashton is a leading Teaching School and currently supports many schools in the Northwest. Teachers from Broadoak regularly support this work and have led high profile projects with plaudits in Westminster.

The latest addition to The Dean Trust is Forest Gate Academy in Partington. As a result of becoming part of the Trust pupil numbers increased rapidly, demonstrating the faith Partington residents have that The Dean Trust will make a positive impact. SATs results also rose dramatically. Broadoak School has had a strong partnership with Forest Gate Academy and staff and pupils continue to support each other with both curriculum and extra-curricular activities. Broadoak’s sports leaders frequently host interschool competitions with all of the Partington primary schools.

Examination results continue to show year on year improvements with Mathematics achieving a fantastic and record breaking 64% A*-C and 47% of pupils achieving the all important 5 A*- C grades including English and Maths. In addition, this year a quarter of Broadoak’s pupils achieved 3 or more A* / A grades’ which is yet another school record. The results have more than quadrupled and now compare favourably with many other Trafford Secondary schools.

Teaching styles are adapted to suit pupils’ potential which encourages children of all abilities to extend themselves. Pupils also enjoy lessons in high quality, purpose built accommodation. Maintaining a positive ethos is important to us and we look to praise all pupils who display pleasing behaviour and work. Excellence and individual achievement is celebrated through our Points Make Prizes scheme, assemblies and major occasions such as our Annual Presentation Evening. However pupils are also clear about sanctions available to staff.

“The outstanding curriculum provides excellent personalised and flexible options for students of different interests especially in Key Stage 4. There is a first class balance of academic and applied learning for all students. Specialist qualifications are offered in a broad range of areas.” OFSTED 2011


Broadoak School has a disciplined and ordered environment. The good discipline is largely based on stimulating lessons to keep the pupils challenged and working with interest and developing creativity. Examples of this include Broadoak pupils designing a Gold Medal winning garden for Partington at the RHS Flower Show at Tatton in 2012. Our pupils have also performed ‘Romeo and Juliet’ as part of the National Schools’ Shakespeare Festival at The Contact Theatre. The school has first class facilities and resources that play a major part in creating a stimulating environment for learning. Significant investment has been made in the last 6 years which have included a superb Vocational Centre and Sports Village. Most recently the school has acquired a brand new Learning Resource Centre overseen by a qualified librarian and equipped with a wide variety of IT equipment, reading books and other materials. Classrooms for the English, Music and Drama faculties have been completely refurbished to provide modern learning environments. The school also has access to the facilities at the nearby FUSE building opened in 2011 for the benefit of the local community. Broadoak pupils regularly use the state of the art theatre, recording studio and radio broadcasting suite.

Ashton on Mersey School Sixth Form continues to develop strongly and was judged to be ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in April 2013. The dedicated building boasts world class facilities for our students. Our range of vocational and A level courses offers fantastic opportunities for students who wish to undertake their post 16 studies at Ashton on Mersey School and this year’s results were yet another school record. Our staff are exceptionally caring and experienced and work hard to ensure each child reaches his or her full potential. Children thrive on the positive atmosphere at the school and take advantage of the many opportunities available to them. We offer activities to suit the needs of all abilities and intellects.

We continue to seek support from business and industry to provide opportunities for pupils. Carrington Business Park provides highly realistic interview panels for Key Stage 4 pupils. Much of the additional funding from our sponsors directly benefits your child.

“The school’s outstanding provision for care, guidance and support results in improving rates of students’ attendance, high levels of enjoyment in school activities and very positive attitudes of students to their school and the work they engage in.”

“In harmony with senior leaders, the governing body successfully develops provision and facilities in the school and wider community which impact strongly on the range of opportunities provided for students.” OFSTED 2011

It is our policy to remain at the forefront of fast moving information and communication technology. The school’s ICT network infrastructure and classroom ICT equipment is regularly refreshed every 3 years. In the summer of 2013 a further £100,000 investment has been made in a range of ICT equipment to ensure our pupils receive the very best resources for their studies. We are also introducing a brand new technology into our classrooms with the installation of the very latest interactive HD audio visual equipment. “Broadoak provides an outstanding quality of education. Inspirational leadership from senior staff and the governing body has further developed good and outstanding provision” OFSTED 2011

Ofsted 2011

We believe that happy children work to their full potential and we place a high emphasis on achieving this through close links between home and school and fostering a caring and secure environment in which children can prosper. We aim to ‘delight our customers’, the pupils, the parents and the community - by listening and putting things right when they go wrong. We strive to be the best but are prepared to listen to others and take advice. Pupils have a major input to school policy and the direction the school is taking, mainly through the School Council. However, increasingly we solicit the views of all pupils on a whole range of issues and our Student Council is an influential group in school. Their views have insured that the school is a better place. Pupils told OFSTED that they look forward to school every day. “In lessons, students show good attitudes to learning and concentrate well. Students feel easily able to approach staff for help if they need it.” OFSTED 2011


The school has an outstanding reputation in the Sports and Arts recognised by the highest accolade of ‘Sports Mark’ award. Music, dance and art are offered during the school day but also include regular trips to the theatre and other cultural events. Broadoak also holds the accolade of International School status and we have regular visits from colleagues and pupils from all parts of the world. We have close links and an exchange with the Ukraine through ‘Dreams and Teams’ and most recently were visited by Olympic delegates from Pakistan and staff and pupils from Mthashana College in South Africa.

“An outstanding range of opportunities is available for students to engage in the school and local community.” OFSTED 2011

The school boasts sports teams in almost every sport and has enjoyed amazing successes including becoming Trafford badminton Champions in 2 year groups. Our young sporting leaders have made a significant impact on the school and they have spread their skills and experiences to other schools in the area and in our partner school in the Ukraine. Extra curricular activities are a key feature of the school with every possible type of trip and visit to suit all interests and all pockets. Theatre trips to London, the Clothes Show, visits overseas and several outdoor and adventurous trips per year are regular fixtures. We are delighted that you are considering entrusting your child to Broadoak School. Our aim is to work in partnership with all parents and we will always be pleased to meet with you and discuss your child’s education. This school welcomes each child to be part of a community in which all concerned endeavour to provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment. We look forward to meeting you.

“The excellent opportunities provided for sport, with high rates of participation, make an outstanding contribution to students’ development.” OFSTED 2011

THE DEAN TRUST

THE DEAN TRUST On the 1st May 2012 Broadoak School changed status to become an Academy. The school has not changed its name but it has become part of The Dean Trust. The Trust was named after Brian Dean Rigby CBE in recognition of his 22 years as Chairman of Governors, for the development of the successful federation with Ashton on Mersey School in 2006, guiding Broadoak to it’s first outstanding Ofsted inspection and four consecutive outstanding Ofsted inspections (currently five following the last inspection in April 2013), for Ashton on Mersey School. The Dean Trust is a Multi Academy Trust comprising of Ashton on Mersey School, Broadoak School and Forest Gate Academy. Committed to securing outcomes for all children, the Trust currently supports many schools in the Northwest. WHAT IS AN ACADEMY? Academies are publicly funded autonomous independent local schools. Academies benefit from greater freedoms to innovate and raise standards. The increase in operational autonomy is widereaching covering aspects such as teaching and learning and the operation of school business such as, delivery of contracted services. Academies are required to follow the law and guidance on admissions, special educational needs and exclusions as if they were maintained schools. Academies have greater freedom over how they use their budgets to best benefit their students. CONSTITUTION OF THE DEAN TRUST BOARD The trustees are a small group of governors (and other specialists) who take on the legal role of coordination of the educational charitable company set up to run the Multi-Academy trust. The trustees are responsible for determining the governance of all the schools within the trust, through a written constitution.

SCHOOL AIMS

PHILOSOPHY We acknowledge that pupils moving from primary to secondary school will find many changes and the first few weeks in a new term prove a difficult time for some children. We will do our best to make the transition as smooth as possible in the hope that their years at Broadoak will be both happy and successful. We aim to provide a broad and well balanced curriculum for pupils. We expect pupils to accept homework as an integral part of the learning process. We will provide extra curricular activities and expect children to be fully involved in this aspect of school life. We will strive to provide a well ordered and safe environment. We expect children to be well mannered, courteous and self disciplined. We believe that it is important that pupils accustom themselves to being tidy, well groomed and appropriately dressed for different kinds of activity. We expect all pupils to wear full school uniform. We expect all hair styles to be moderate and not follow the extremes of fashion. We expect attendance to be regular and pupils to be punctual to school. We expect all pupils to respect and be courteous to both staff and fellow pupils. We expect all pupils to observe and carry out basic rules and instructions. We believe that the success of our efforts is largely dependent upon good relationships between home and school. It is essential that there should be a bond forged by mutual respect and friendly co-operation. This, we feel, is especially important in the initial stages of secondary education.

STANDARDS

ATTENDANCE AND PUNCTUALITY At Broadoak School we are committed to improve attendance and punctuality as this will have an impact on your child’s attainment. Pupils should report to their form rooms at 8.40am for registration. Pupils who are late for school will be automatically placed in detention that lunchtime. Pupils who are late on 1 or more occasions within a week will be detained for 30 minutes on Friday after school. In an effort to encourage attendance it is our policy to telephone parents on the first day of a pupil’s absence. This system is a genuine attempt to stop truancy and prevent children being at risk by wandering the streets without their parents’ knowledge. A telephone message from home on the first day of a pupil’s absence is appreciated and will prevent us from contacting the home. Your child should also bring a note of explanation for his or her Form Tutor on returning to school. We believe that any absence from school, for whatever reason, is detrimental to a child’s long term life opportunities, so should be avoided if at all possible. Regular and punctual attendance at school is both a legal requirement, and essential for pupils in order to maximise their educational opportunities. Sections 444A and 444B of the Education Act 1996 empowers Headteachers or their nominated deputies to issue Fixed Penalty Notices in cases of unauthorised absence from school, where a parent/ carer is considered capable but unwilling to secure an improvement in their child’s attendance at school. If a child of compulsory school age fails to attend regularly at school his/her parent/carer is guilty of an offence under Section 444 Education Act 1996. If unauthorised absences continue after the period of notice, proceedings will be taken in accordance with Section 444(1) or (1A) Education Act 1996. A formal written warning of the possibility of a Penalty Notice will be issued to parent(s) and a period of 15 school days given to improve attendance. Where there is no improvement a Fixed Penalty can be issued. The amount of the penalty is £60 if paid with 21 days of receipt of the notice. This rises to £120 if paid after the 21 days but within 28 days. If the payment is not made the parent/carer(s) will be prosecuted for the original offence and could be subject to a range of fines or other disposals in the Magistrates’ court. Penalty Notices and other sanctions will be used only where parental cooperation in this process is either absent or deemed insufficient to resolve the problem. They will be used as a means to support parents/carers to meet their responsibilities in law, and where there is a reasonable expectation that their use will secure an improvement. During the lunch break pupils must stay on the school premises unless they can be picked up by a parent or relative to ensure their supervision and safety. No other alternatives are available. Children who stay for a school meal are expected to remain on the premises under the supervision of school staff for the whole of the lunch break. NO RESPONSIBILITY CAN BE ACCEPTED FOR ANY PUPIL WHO LEAVES THE SCHOOL PREMISES IN DEFIANCE OF THIS RULE. Pupils who achieve 100% attendance will be rewarded by the school. HOLIDAYS DURING TERM TIME Amendments have been made to the 2006 regulations in the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013. From 1st September 2013 this prevents headteachers from authorising holidays/absence during term time. Leave of absence from school should only be in exceptional circumstances. For further information please see the website. MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS If possible all appointments should be arranged out of school hours to ensure minimum disruption to your child’s education. When appointments have to be made in school hours a note asking for release must be sent to the Form Tutor.

STANDARDS

REWARDS A conscious attempt is made by all our staff to recognise individual effort and achievement both in and out of the classroom. Assemblies and newsletters are common vehicles for recognising outstanding achievement. The Executive Principal has a ‘Pupil of the Month’ to celebrate outstanding achievement. Good work and regular attendance are rewarded through the ‘Points make Prizes’ rewards system and the awarding of certificates. Prizes and vouchers are awarded for excellent attendance. In addition form groups compete termly for the best attendance, the most punctual and the highest standard of behaviour awards. High profile Presentation Evenings are used to celebrate the achievement of our pupils and take place twice per year. We have introduced ‘rewards activities’ for many pupils whose attendance, punctuality and conduct have been maintained at a consistently high standard.

DISCIPLINE AND SANCTIONS The policy is to operate the normal school sanctions including detentions after school and at lunchtime. Pupils who blatantly disregard the code of behaviour expected of them or behave in an anti-social manner may be temporarily or permanently excluded from the school in accordance with the procedure formulated by the Local Governing Body. In such cases parents would be kept fully informed and involved. Alternatively pupils may be transferred to a partner school for a short period of time. A serious view is taken of any anti-social behaviour committed by our pupils on the way to or from school. Pupils are expected to remain on the premises during lunchtime. We believe that the standards of behaviour expected in school are exactly those that are expected by parents in their homes. We firmly believe that a strong partnership forged between parents and teachers can overcome most behavioural problems. We expect decisions made in school to receive full parental support. DETENTIONS Detentions are given to pupils whose effort, attitude or behaviour fall below the expectations of staff at Broadoak School. Staff may detain pupils at break, lunchtime or after school for up to 30 minutes without giving notice to parents. Detentions of up to 1 hour after school can be given for more serious misdemeanours, but staff will always provide parents with at least 24 hours notice. The basis of our discipline is through providing interesting and constructive activities in school supported by praise. In most cases this prevents poor behaviour. However, the following sanctions are in place. In accordance with our present code of practice parents will always be kept informed of serious and other regular patterns of misbehaviour. Examples of conduct leading to action other than immediate exclusion include: • Unauthorised absence • Persistent lateness

STANDARDS

A. Sanctions taken against those pupils who commit minor acts of misbehaviour • Verbal warnings • Placing the pupil on report (often used as an incentive rather than a ‘punishment’) • Detentions which could be at break, lunchtimes or after school, we try to give parents advanced notice of after school detentions longer than 30 minutes B. Sanctions taken against those pupils who commit serious acts of anti-social behaviour Examples of conduct which may lead to fixed term exclusion, internal isolation or transfer to partner school, • Fighting • Bullying - either physical or verbal abuse including teasing at the expense of another pupil • Wilful Vandalism - to school property or property of a pupil or member of staff • Theft - of any property of pupils, staff or school • Repeated Disruptive Behaviour - which leads to the teacher having to spend a disproportionate amount of time with one pupil at the expense of others C. Examples of misbehaviour that may lead to immediate permanent exclusion. • One or more of the previous incidents deemed pre-meditated or deliberate or ignoring direct instructions to desist • One or more of the previous incidents after a fixed term exclusion • When a pupil is in breach of a ‘contract’ which has been approved by the pupil’s parents • On an occasion when any one act of misbehaviour is deemed to be too serious to be dealt with by any other sanction • Deliberate and unprovoked physical attack or assault on a member of staff or another pupil • Use or distribution of illegal drugs, substances or alcohol on school premises ‘REMOVE’ MODEL Within lessons we operate a ‘REMOVE’ model where pupils, who despite verbal warnings continue to disrupt a lesson, are removed. Pupils who are removed or who self remove will automatically receive a 30 minute detention for each remove. Pupils who fail to attend the 30 minute detention with the class teacher that day will serve a 1 hour detention the following day. Pupils will be issued with a ‘REMOVE’ slip to hand to parents/carers which acts as 24 hours notice of the 1 hour detention the following day, (should the pupil fail to attend the shorter detention). Pupils who receive 3 removes in a week will be placed into ‘isolation’ with a Pupil Support Manager. Work provided to pupils in isolation will be taken from the bank of work supplied by Curriculum Managers. Isolated pupils will have a different lunch and break time than other pupils. •

A disruptive pupil is uncooperative and prevents both themselves and other pupils in class from working.

A disruptive pupil takes up the teachers attention and prevents the teacher from giving the other pupils the attention that they need.

Disruptive pupils are selfish and do not care about other pupils in their class who want to learn and do well in school.

CURRICULUM

ORGANISATION AND TEACHING ARRANGEMENTS The curriculum and pupils’ academic attainment is the responsibility of the Executive Principal and the Senior Leadership Team. Academic meetings occur half-termly to discuss issues and developments. For the purpose of pastoral care the school is divided into five year groups. The Assistant Principal, Mr F Mackintosh leads the Pastoral Team. The five year groups are divided into three key phases, each of which is the responsibility of a Director of Learning: Transition (Year 7 ) Miss A Willan, Key Stage 3 (Years 8 & 9) Miss J Mantel, Key Stage 4 (Years 10 & 11) Mrs J McKay. In turn the Directors of Learning are supported by three Pupil Support Managers and a team of Form Tutors. The Pastoral System has the added dimension of a House System running vertically through Years 7 – 11 which promotes academic and sporting competition. In all year groups pupils are grouped separately for English, Mathematics and Science according to ability, using SATs baseline data from Key Stage 2 or Teacher Assessments at the end of each year. Such arrangements ensure that teaching and learning is tailored to meet the needs of all our children. At Key Stage 3 other foundation subjects are linked with English except for Design Technology and ICT which are grouped separately. At Key Stage 4 pupils remain in ability groups for English, Mathematics and Science but are placed in mixed ability groups for all options subjects including Citizenship and Religious Education. The timetable is based on a 30 period week and the time spent on teaching, excluding the statutory daily act of worship, is currently 25 hours and 25 minutes.

RELIGIOUS AFFILIATIONS The school is nondenominational but Religious Education, Social and Personal Education and Citizenship Training (RESPECT) is a compulsory subject. Pupils may be excused from religious aspects of RESPECT at the written request of parents and they may also be excused from the religious part of school assembly.

CURRICULUM

SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS Parents of children with special needs are no different to any other parents in that you are looking for an environment where your child is most likely to thrive: where they will feel happy, safe and secure and benefit from the kind of teaching, support and pastoral care that enables them to reach their potential. On entry to Broadoak School pupils are placed in teaching groups based on Key Stage 2 results in the core subjects and the recommendation of their primary school teacher. Their work and progress is closely monitored throughout the year. Parental support and assistance at home is invaluable at this stage and can greatly enhance the work done in school. Pupils may also be withdrawn from lessons on an individual basis to receive extra help and support. In Year 7 there is also a ‘Primary Curriculum’ Group which is smaller in number. Pupils who require more specialist support for literacy and numeracy or are identified with social, emotional and specific learning needs receive specialist support in a purpose built classroom whilst integrating into the curriculum for creative subjects. We feel that such an arrangement benefits those who require additional support, whilst also allowing us to challenge the children who can work to a high level independently. In Years 10 & 11 support is provided for those that require it for core subjects and options. For some pupils who find it difficult to access a full ‘academic’ curriculum they will be directed towards an ‘alternative’ curriculum (see Curriculum Section). This enables pupils to enjoy success at all levels whatever their ability. The school receives funding for statemented pupils. This is delegated to meet each child’s needs according to their Individual Education Plan, reviewed annually, which is produced in partnership with the local Authority. We have outstanding links with the Authority and many other specialist support agencies. They complement our own experience and expertise in meeting the needs of all our children with special educational needs, including the assessment of any child whose needs may emerge during secondary education. Pupils with physical disabilities are also fully integrated into all aspects of the curriculum and receive help from classroom assistants as required in practical lessons.

THE INDIVIDUAL LEARNING SUPPORT CENTRE (ILSC) The purpose of the ILSC is to meet the needs of individual pupils irrespective of age and ability. The nature of the support is determined by each pupil’s particular need and can be academic, including Gifted and Talented, emotional and/or social. We aim to provide support across the whole curriculum and liaise closely with teaching staff to ensure the pupil’s progress is enhanced. The ILSC also coordinates the delivery of individual teaching and learning programmes designed specifically for pupils with special educational needs.

CHILD PROTECTION Parents should be aware that the school will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils. In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill treatment, neglect or abuse, staff will follow Trafford’s Area Child Protection Guide: ‘Caring for Children’. Subsequently they will inform the Social Services of their concern. The school has a designated Child Protection Officer – Mrs C Hammond A copy of our Child Protection Policy is available on the website

CURRICULUM

OUTSIDE AGENCIES We work very closely with agencies who have expertise at working with pupils ‘outside the classroom’, for a variety of reasons. These include agencies such as: YISP; PAYP; CYPS and 42nd Street. The School Nurse and Educational Welfare Officer have regular contact with the school. In their respective roles both offer invaluable support to our pupils. Through Relate we employ the services of a counsellor, who arranges appointments to meet some of our pupils. This service is accessed through a referral process. Pupils for whom English is not their first language receive help from the E.A.L. Support Service.

HOMEWORK Homework is graded according to the position of the pupil in the school. For the first two years homework should not exceed one hour per night. In Key Stage 3 homework is set weekly in English, Mathematics and Science. It is set fortnightly in all other subjects. Homework for Years 7 and 8 is also available on ‘Moodle’ the virtual learning environment. Subject teachers may also set additional homework linking directly with topics studied in lessons. In Year 9 there is the opportunity for some pupils to begin their GCSE courses and therefore homework is a balance of coursework, revision, research and other extended learning tasks. Time required to complete homework can increase to one and a half hours each evening. In Years 10 and 11, Pupils can expect at least hour per night and every subject will set 1 homework per week.

PLANNERS All pupils are issued with a pupil planner to help to improve communications between home and school and to help pupils record their homework. Training will be given to pupils, by their Form Tutor, in the correct use of the planner. We would ask parents to check and sign the planner each week to ensure their child is keeping up to date. Under this system parents will be informed if their child does not produce work to the required standard. PLANNER CHECKS Every Form Tutor will check pupils planners at least once a week. Year 7, 8 and 9 Form Tutors will check planners on a Monday during form time and Year 10 and 11 Form Tutors will check planners on a Tuesday during form time. • Pupils without planners or those without parents’ signatures will be detained by Form Tutors for 30 minutes and 15 minutes respectively. • Directors of Learning, PSMs and the Assistant Principal will conduct random planner checks which will take place throughout the year. Pupils without planners will have their name logged. Directors of Learning and PSMs will hold detentions for those pupils on Thursdays.

CURRICULUM

CURRICULUM ORGANISATION We aim to ensure that the education offered at Broadoak School meets the best needs and interests of all our young people. With the abolition of national tests at Key Stage 3 the core curriculum continues to adapt, broadening the opportunities for young people. English, Maths and Science have flexibility to commence GCSE courses in Year 9. Commencing qualifications earlier and spreading the assessment burden allows pupils to build confidence in their studies, provides examination practice and, where necessary, allows an additional opportunity to re-sit qualifications. UPPER SCHOOL We aim to ensure that the education offered at Broadoak School meets the best needs and interests of all our young people. Towards the end of Year 9, pupils and parents, in consultation with the staff, are invited to opt for a choice of subjects to be studied in Year 10 and 11. There are compulsory subjects which they all must study making up the Core Curriculum. CORE CURRICULUM - studied by all pupils Number of lessons English Mathematics Science BTEC or GCSE with Additional Science Physical Education including Games RESPECT (Incorporating an option of either GCSE Citizenship or RE)

4 4 6 3* 1

* BTEC Sport may be offered to those pupils who wish to undertake the course and show aptitude during this time allocation. All pupils study English Language with higher ability pupils also studying English Literature. English controlled assessments commence in Year 9 with pupils given the opportunity to sit the examination as early as Year 10. Mathematics also has examination sittings in Year 10. Science has a number of pathways with BTEC Science, GCSE Science, Additional Science and Triple Science all chosen to suit the needs of individual pupils giving them the greatest chance of success. During RESPECT pupils will be asked to select and study a full course GCSE in Citizenship or RE.

WORK RELATED LEARNING The school is committed to providing pupils with the opportunity to learn about work, for work and through work. Throughout the curriculum our students are given the opportunity to learn about the world of work in all subject areas and are set tasks in a work-based context. Across both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 enrichment activities are planned that will enhance the personal capabilities needed upon entering employment and in adult life. Pupils are encouraged to be aware of their own strengths and capabilities and how these could affect their career choices in the future. Pupils are also encouraged to show enterprising behaviour in all subject areas. At Key Stage 4 the school is dedicated to enhancing the curriculum with a focus on learning for work, with the introduction of vocational based qualifications in some subject areas. We are committed to providing our pupils with the skills, knowledge and capabilities that will allow them to pursue an education pathway and career of their choice.

CURRICULUM

CROSS CURRICULAR THEMES PROJECT DAYS In Years 7 and 8 Project Days take place every half term. These events encourage group learning and cross curricular delivery. Pupils compete in teams on a particular project. Pupils create futuristic schools; build theme parks; design recyclable clothing; film, edit and report on sports footage; market an airline or football club; create a retail business; re-enact the Civil War; investigate internationalism or engage in a community based agenda. These deep learning experiences develop all the time! On these days the real focus is enjoyment alongside achievement. HEALTH EDUCATION Health Education is largely covered in the PSHCEE course for the whole school, but certain aspects are incorporated in Science and Physical Education schemes of work. Drug Education and Sex Education are important aspects of Health Education. Both of these important areas are developed over the five year course accounting for the increasing maturity of the pupils. Sex Education is included in Science and PSHCEE the former covering the physical aspects, the latter emphasising the importance of caring relationships, responsible attitudes and self respect. Contraception, sexually transmitted infections and personal decision making are discussed in this context. Health professionals visit to deliver road shows on these issues and a nurse conducts a weekly drop–in clinic. CAREERS EDUCATION Careers education is an integral part of the education of each pupil, and is incorporated into the PSHCEE curriculum. During the course the pupils will be encouraged to assess their interests, skills and abilities and to consider these alongside their plans for the future. They will also be encouraged to develop a deeper understanding of the adult world of work and leisure in order to help them make sound career choices. Students also undertake an accredited course to develop and assess the necessary skills required for the world of work. During the course, pupils will undergo thorough preparation for their mock interviews guided by a Connexions Personal Advisor and a Learning Support Assistant. These mock interviews in Year 10 will take place with employers at Carrington Business Park. There will also be other occasions when both pupils and parents will be able to meet representatives from the careers services for individual guidance. There is a “drop – in” careers area which is accessible to pupils and is devoted to careers literature which pupils will be able to use for reference. During Year 10 there is an opportunity for ‘work experience’, when students can sample working life and derive an insight in to the physical and mental demands of an occupation as well as formulating future ideas. CITIZENSHIP Citizenship is taught within PSHCEE with students having the opportunity to select a GCSE in Citizenship or RE in years 10 and 11. Citizenship is taught cross curricular and is further enhanced by special timetabled days and themed weeks. Citizenship education gives students the knowledge, skills and understanding of their rights and responsibilities at local, national and global levels. There are many opportunities for students to participate as active citizens at Broadoak School, such as the School Council, Local Democracy Week and Community events and Project days in Years 7 and 8.

PERSONAL APPEARANCE

PERSONAL APPEARANCE We believe that we must continue to present a good image both inside and outside the school and prepare your child for the world of further education and work by instilling good routines and standards. Each day staff will check that pupils are dressed and presented in an appropriate manner for school. Pupils are not to wear make-up. Pupils wearing a noticeable amount of make-up will be sent to their Director of Learning or the pastoral office immediately to remove the make-up and have their name logged. Pupils consistently wearing a noticeable amount of make-up will receive a full isolation. Pupils are not to wear nail varnish or false nails. Pupils wearing nail varnish or false nails will be sent to their Director of Learning or the pastoral office immediately to remove the nail varnish or false nails and have their name logged. Pupils consistently wearing nail varnish or false nails will receive a full isolation Pupils are not to wear any jewellery other than a watch. Any pupils wearing jewellery such as ear rings, nose rings, rings, bracelets chains etc. will have their jewellery confiscated by the teacher. Confiscated jewellery will be sent to the pastoral office in an envelope (with the pupil’s name on it) by the end of the school day. Pupils failing to follow this standard will be sent to their Director of Learning or the pastoral office and may be isolated with their Form Tutor, Director of Learning, the Assistant Principal or placed into full isolation. Pupils are to have acceptable, presentable hair appropriate for school. Extreme hairstyles are not in keeping with our excellent standard of appearance. Judging whether a haircut is acceptable is a subjective and difficult task. However we are firm in our opinion that haircuts should not be extreme. As a result pupils must not have haircuts with lines or shapes shaved into their hair or have their hair shaved at a number 2 or lower. In addition, NO extreme colours or ‘dip dying’ of hair are permitted other than traditional highlights. We expect all pupils to have neat and tidy hair styles and ensure that long hair is tied back. We also request that hair adornments are kept to a simple hair slide or hair band. Pupils not following these standards will be isolated with their Form Tutor, Director of Learning or with the Assistant Principal until their hair either grows back or is dyed back to a natural colour. Mobile phones, MP3 players and headphones are not to be used on the school site. Pupils found using them will have the item confiscated. Confiscated items can be collected by parents or carers at the end of each school day, otherwise pupils may collect the items themselves on a Friday after school. Phones, MP3 players or headphones confiscated on Friday will be returned to pupils at 4.00pm. Pupils are strongly advised that they should not bring these items to school, they do so at their own risk. Pupils must wear correct and full school uniform. Any pupils not wearing the correct tie (all should be clip on), skirt (pleated only, no linen pants or leggings) or footwear* (no trainers or canvas pumps) will be isolated with Form Tutors in the first instance. Pupils not wearing the correct or full uniform will be sent to their Director of Learning or the pastoral office immediately. Pupils consistently wearing the wrong uniform for more than a couple of days will be placed in full isolation with their Director of Learning or with the Assistant Principal. *Shoes can be borrowed from the pastoral office in cases of emergency (subject to availability) PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT ACCEPT WRITTEN OR TELEPHONE REQUESTS FROM PARENTS/ CARERS. CONFISCATED ITEMS MUST BE COLLECTED PERSONALLY.

STANDARDS

EQUIPMENT All pupils MUST have a bag in which they can carry their belongings without damage. Pupils should have the following basic equipment for every lesson which MUST be in a PENCIL CASE 1. AT LEAST 2 BLACK WRITING PENS 2. PENCIL 3. RULER 4. RUBBER 5. SHARPENER Some subjects will require specialist equipment that pupils are expected to have, for example, a calculator in Maths, kit for PE. In other subjects, pupils will be loaned equipment that must be used respectfully and returned at the end of each lesson. FELT TIP PENS ARE BANNED FROM SCHOOL, AS IS ‘TIPPEX’ OR ANY SIMILAR CORRECTION FLUID.

PERSONAL PROPERTY Parents are strongly advised to ensure that personal property, including all items of uniform, is clearly marked with the child’s name. Whilst every effort will be made to safeguard property the school cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage. In general, items of value, monetary or sentimental, should not be brought into school. We do not take responsibility for loss of personal belongings. The school will not make any refunds for loss of personal belongings. Claims should be made on own insurance policies. Cycles may be brought into school and stored in the designated cycle racks. We encourage pupils to wear a safety helmet whilst cycling to and from school. Parents should ensure that cycles carry adequate insurance cover in the event of loss, as the school cannot be held responsible. Cycles are brought into school and stored in the designated areas at owner’s risk. They must be locked within this area. All bikes must have fully operational brakes (Note: A fixed wheel is not an acceptable braking system)

COMMUNICATION

PASTORAL TEAM PASTORAL CARE At Broadoak School we pride ourselves on outstanding pastoral care, which begins prior to the pupil starting the school with very close liaison with our partner primary schools, parents and carers. Once a child gains a place at the school they are allocated to the House and Form Group where they are looked after by a team of people dedicated to their well-being, inextricably linked with pastoral care and emotional development of pupils. FORM TUTOR Form Tutors have day to day responsibility for about 20 pupils. Their main role is to monitor a pupil’s attendance, punctuality, general well being and to organise interform activities. It is to the Form Tutor that parents will normally send their routine correspondence. The Form Tutors will generally remain with their form for the duration of their time at school. DIRECTOR OF LEARNING Each Director of Learning has responsibility for the welfare and progress of all pupils within their year groups. They are the member of staff who parents should contact to seek advice, discuss problems or raise matters of specific concern. PUPIL SUPPORT MANAGERS The Pupil Support Managers, Miss Greaves, Mr Meaney and Mrs Holland will work closely with pupils throughout the school offering advice and support both in curricular and extra curricular time. They provide significant motivation for many of our pupils, and support them in their attendance and with academic and social issues They have a non-teaching role within the school.

REPORTING TO PARENTS Our intention is to keep parents and guardians informed of pupils’ progress as regularly as possible. We involve pupils in setting targets based on prior attainment to encourage them to reach their potential and realise their expectations. Each pupil will receive an interim report inthe Autumn term detailing targets and initial impressions for that academic year. Parents will also receive a further interim report and a full annual written report. Year 11 will have interim and annual reports. Throughout their career at Broadoak pupils should gather evidence of success and involvement in the life of our school. Progress Evenings will coincide with the full annual report for each pupil so that the concerns of subject teachers and parents can be addressed. We welcome pupils on Progress Evenings but at times teachers may wish to communicate without the pupil being present so as not to undermine confidence. Senior staff are always willing to discuss any matters concerning pupil progress at any point during the year. Please contact school to make an appointment should such a need arise.

INFORMATION

GENERAL INFORMATION CHARGING The Governing Body has adopted the Local Authority’s policy on charging for extra curricular activities, and parents may of course refer to this document in detail. Briefly, no compulsory charge will be made for any activity, which forms part of a course of study within the curriculum. Extra curricular activities taking place wholly or mainly outside school hours are classed as optional extras, and are subject to charging . Other activities taking place wholly or mainly, inside school hours will normally be financed by voluntary contributions, although it will be made clear that such activities may not take place if insufficient contributions are received. Consideration may be given to supporting those families experiencing financial hardship by reducing or waiving contributions (excluding school fund) as appropriate. PARENTS IN PARTNERSHIP (PIP) Broadoak School has been awarded the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) it is a national award that provides a coherent framework through which schools can deliver effective parental engagement. PARENTPAY ParentPay is our preferred method of payment to school. ParentPay offers you the freedom to make online payments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Making a payment with your credit or debit card is straightforward and ParentPay holds an electronic record of your payments for you to view at a later date.

EXTRA CURRICULAR

EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES At Broadoak we work extremely hard to provide an extensive range of clubs and activities for our children. Our staff offer activities that will interest and include every child throughout the school. A great amount of time and effort is spent by staff in organising holidays, visits, games and outdoor pursuits and other clubs and activities. We hope that parents will encourage their children to play a full part in these activities which make up the life of the school. All children who are selected or choose to take part in these activities are reminded that whilst representing Broadoak School in the community and beyond, they are ambassadors for the school. All children who are selected to take part in these activities or represent the school MUST show formal courtesy and politeness to members of the public, teams from other schools and their staff. All pupils are expected to follow our ‘fairplay’ policy.

Introduction Telephone number 0161 7761977 This inspection was carried out by one of Her Majesty’s Inspectors and two additional inspectors. Inspectors observed teaching and learning in 18 lessons taught by 17 different teachers. Meetings were held with members Fax number 0161 7754559 of the governing body, senior staff and groups of students. Telephone discussions took place with the Director Email address office@br oadoak.trafford.sch.uk of the Local Authority Children’s Services and representatives of two of the school’s partnerships. Inspectors observed the school’s work, and looked at a range of school documentation including data showing students’ attainment and progress, policies, the minutes of the governing body, reports from the School Improvement Partner, safeguarding records and students’ work. Questionnaires were scrutinised from a sample of students, staff and from 44 parents and carers. The inspection team reviewed many aspects of the school’s work. It looked in detail at a number of key areas. � What is the progress of all pupils in English and mathematics and especially the highest attaining students? � What are the rates of students’ attendance and how successful is the impact of school leaders’ initiatives to improve this? � How consistent is good-quality teaching across different subjects? � What is the impact of leaders’ strategies to provide outstanding curricular opportunities on the progress and attainment of pupils in core subjects? Broadoak is a much smaller than the average-sized secondary modern school. It is situated in a local authority which operates a policy of selective entry to secondary education. The proportion of students known to be eligible for free school meals is well above the national average. A lower than average proportion of students Age group Inspection date(s) Inspection number

speaks English as an additional language. The proportion of students with special educational needs and/or disabilities is well above average, and those with a statement of special educational needs is below average. In 2006, Broadoak School joined the West Trafford Learning Partnership in Federation with Ashton-on-Mersey secondary school. The two schools have one governing body, an executive headteacher and a business manager. There are separate headteachers for each school. Broadoak has been awarded a number of nationally recognised awards including Investors in People and Sportsmark. On the school site is a sports village providing an extensive range of facilities used by the school and local community. Broadoak is designated as a London 2013 Olympic Games training site for football. In September of this year, adjacent to the school, ‘The Fuse’ opened. This is a privately sponsored youth facility providing state of the art dance and drama studios, a 300 seat theatre, a local radio station, a computer centre and meeting rooms. The Fuse is used by the school for the promotion of the expressive arts curriculum and vocational studies. It is also used by businesses and the local community. The management boards of the sports village and The Fuse include members of the federated governing body and senior staff from the school.

MAIN FINDINGS

Broadoak provides an outstanding quality of education. Inspirational leadership from senior staff and the governing body has further developed good and outstanding provision seen at the last inspection. The systematic rigour to leaders’ monitoring and evaluation of the school’s performance leads to precise targets for improvement and sustained excellence in the school’s provision. This demonstrates the school’s outstanding capacity to improve. Many students enter Year 7 with levels of attainment which are well below those found nationally. Due to consistently good teaching and an outstanding curriculum, they make good progress to reach broadly average standards by the end of Year 11. A very wide range of excellent facilities provides extremely well for students’ interests, aptitudes and abilities. In particular, vocational studies are outstandingly provided and outcomes are excellent. The school’s outstanding provision for care, guidance and support results in improving rates of students’ attendance, high levels of enjoyment in school activities and very positive attitudes of students to their school and the work they engage in. Since the last inspection, standards have risen, as shown by the well above average percentage of students gaining 5A* to C grades at GCSE or equivalent. The provisional figure for 2011 is 92%. There is a consistent improvement evident in the rate of progress being made by all students across the full range of subjects. Levels of attainment in English and mathematics are a little below average, but given the very low starting points of many students, this represents significantly good progress. All groups of students make above average progress. The highest attaining students make above average progress, but the percentage of students gaining the top A*/A grades in GCSE examinations are below average with the notable exception of physical education which achieves above average results. In the last three years, the gap between the progress made by students known to be eligible for free school meals and the progress made by all students has closed rapidly so that there is now no difference. This improvement is mirrored for students with special educational needs and/or disabilities. The proportion of good and outstanding teaching has improved since the last inspection as a result of extremely effective and rigorous monitoring by leaders. Teachers are supported to improve by carefully targeted training based on the outcomes of monitoring. There is whole-school commitment to improvement by all staff. A `can do’ culture pervades all the school’s work and the exemplary vision and direction of the senior leaders is tangibly seen in the responses of staff questionnaires during the inspection which show overwhelming support for leaders’ plans and strategies to improve the school. There is some variation in the quality of teaching, in part brought about by several staff changes. For example, the mathematics faculty has seen an entire new teaching complement in recent months. This turnover of staff and the time needed to fully induct and embed new appointments into the school’s systems explains why teaching is judged as good rather than outstanding.

Over time, students’ overall attendance has been below average and the percentage of persistent absence has been above average. Due to the very good impact of leaders’ strategies to improve these figures, they are now broadly similar to national expectations. The attendance officer works tirelessly to monitor attendance. Visits are made to students’ homes, effective use is made of welfare officers and regular letters encourage a good attendance. Recourse to the courts to prosecute persistent offenders is taken when appropriate. What does the school need to do to improve further? Raise further, students’ attainment in English and mathematics by: - increasing the school’s GCSE grade expectations for the highest attaining students - sustaining the improvements in students’ attendance.

Outcomes for individuals and groups of pupils

Grade 2

Students say they enjoy school, feel safe and they appreciate what the staff provide for them. Relationships between staff and students are respectful and this results in good behaviour in lessons and around the school. Students’ questionnaires show almost all agree that staff care for their well-being and are interested in their views. Inspectors’ observations confirm this; there were many examples seen of staff stopping students in the corridors and asking about how they are getting on with their studies or in other activities such as sport. In lessons, students show good attitudes to learning and concentrate well. Students feel easily able to approach staff for help if they need it. Attendance is improving and makes an increasingly positive impact on students’ ability to learn. Students gain a wide range of externally accredited qualifications and skills which equip them well for their future economic well-being. The excellent opportunities provided for sport, with high rates of participation, make an outstanding contribution to students’ development of healthy lifestyles. Students learn about physical health matters through the curriculum and they are knowledgeable about the best choices to make regarding food and drink. An outstanding range of opportunities is available for students to engage in the school and local community. For example, students act as peer mentors, prefects, members of the council and some are actively involved in the management of The Fuse. It is too soon to evaluate the full impact of provision at The Fuse on students’ achievements. The outstanding curriculum ensures an excellent match to students’ needs and aspirations. As a result, students show interest and enthusiasm for learning and this contributes strongly to their good progress. In lessons, students enjoy learning through practical activities and they say they make most progress when they are able to learn through `doing.’ Students gain broadly average skills and knowledge by the time they leave the school and the vast majority gain numbers of qualifications above the national norms. The development of students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness is good, meaning that when combined with their academic and vocational skills, they are well prepared to enter the world of work, training or further education. The percentage of students not entering any of these pathways is reducing and is better than the national comparisons.

HOW EFFECTIVE IS THE PROVISION? The quality of teaching

The extent to which the curriculum meets pupils’ needs, including, where relevant, through partnerships

Grade 1

The effectiveness of care, guidance and support

Grade 1

The good quality of teaching is characterised by the good subject knowledge of staff, very good relationships between students and staff and consistent application of leaders’ policies and expectations. The profile of teaching, as shown by school and local authority monitoring, has improved since the last inspection. Observations made by inspectors, combined with scrutiny of students’ work and analysis of tracking data, support this view. Most lessons are good. There is some outstanding teaching and an equal amount which is satisfactory. The best lessons are where teachers have clear expectations for students’ learning based upon prior assessment of what students already know and can do. This ensures a good level of challenge for the different abilities of students. In these lessons, teachers briskly engage students with interesting initial tasks which are quickly moved on when teachers have checked students’ understanding. In satisfactory lessons, there is often too much teacher talk and too few opportunities for students to think and reflect upon their learning. Also, the teachers’ expectations of the highest attaining students are not always high enough in some lessons because similar tasks are given to all students. The outstanding curriculum provides excellent personalised and flexible options for students of different interests especially in Key Stage 4. There is a first class balance of academic and applied learning for all students. A very

wide range of partnerships with external agencies enriches provision, widens choices and brings work-related experience to students’ learning. Excellent opportunities for students are provided through the federation by utilising staff’s expertise and achieving excellent economy of scale for the availability of resources. Specialist qualifications are offered in a broad range of areas. For example, a sports qualification offers dedicated teaching on careers in sport in partnership with a premiership football team situated in close proximity to the school. Sport, science, health and social care, construction, retail, salon studies and motor vehicle technology are all provided at Broadoak with external courses available in media and hairdressing. Opportunities for students to complete GCSE examinations early, in Year 10, are in place. Well-targeted support is provided for all students. A vulnerable children’s team including a head of behaviour, director of learning, pupil support managers, pastoral secretary, attendance officer and special educational needs leader, all ensure that students are quickly identified if they need additional support. Excellent use is made of external agencies including psychological support, youth offending team and mental and emotional health services. The school nurse and councillors are available daily and the school works closely with families and students to support learning, development and well-being. Post 16 progression is aided by the Connexions officer who meets with all students with special educational needs and/or disabilities in Year 10. Staff are trained in the techniques to support students with medical conditions. Communication between staff is excellent and this ensures a prompt response to supporting students’ needs.

Grade 1

The headteacher and executive headteacher set extremely high expectations for their own performance and for everyone who works or studies in the school. They lead by personal example. Together, they enthuse and inspire staff, students and the local community. They build highly effective staff teams who unequivocally share their vision for school improvement and students’ success and well-being. Management systems run extremely smoothly and ensure the day-to-day organisation and function of the school is first class. Staff expertise is used very productively to the maximum benefit of all students in the federation. Professional development is outstanding and staff questionnaires returned to inspectors show overwhelming support for leaders. The governing body provides exemplary strategic management. Led by a very knowledgeable and experienced chair it is both supportive of, and challenging to, school leaders. The quality of reports received by the governing body is exceptionally good. Leaders provide termly evaluations of the school’s progress to improve provision and outcomes for students. In harmony with senior leaders, the governing body successfully develops provision and facilities in the school and wider community which impact strongly on the range of opportunities provided for students. Safeguarding procedures are very effective. Good arrangements are in place to undertake risk assessments to keep students, staff and visitors free from harm. Training is up to date and goes beyond what is required statutorily. There is good promotion of equal opportunities as evidenced by the successful closing of the gap for notable student groups. Community cohesion is good due to effective policies and reviews of plans which take into account the specific needs of students in the school.
