Wheatley Park School
How do we know we're improving?
It’s easy to claim that a school is improving year on year, but where is the proof? Like most schools, we try to draw upon a wide range of evidence at Wheatley Park to ensure we have an accurate view of our strengths and areas for improvement.
In addition to the school’s performance data and the views of staff, leaders and governors, we greatly value your views as parents/carers. Every Parents’ Evening, many of you kindly complete the brief parent/carer survey. A comparison of the results (available in detail here) shows that you think the school improved overall in 2017-18 compared to 2016-17. A more comprehensive consultation is planned for Terms 3 and 4 to inform our forward planning.
Just as importantly, we regularly seek the views of the students. The vast majority of Years 7 to 11 (700+ students in total) recently completed a questionnaire on their school experience, with a particular focus on behaviour. Pleasingly, the results (available here) suggest that the improvements identified in 2017-18 are continuing into 2018-19.
Further evidence of our upward trajectory comes from our colleagues within the River Learning Trust. Last Friday, Tom Boulter, RLT Director of Secondary Education, and Andrew Hanlon, Headteacher at The Marlborough School (also belonging to RLT) spent a day in lessons, following up a visit from last May. They confirmed that, sixth months on, students are behaving even better, working even harder and taking even more pride in their achievements.
That said, we are in no way complacent and will continue working hard to deliver the School Improvement Plan with its dual focus this year on developing the students’ work ethic alongside the quality of the curriculum being delivered in lessons.
None of the improvements to date would be possible without the enormous support we receive from parents/carers day in day out. This is never taken for granted and we truly appreciate the numerous ways in which you support your children to be happy and successful at Wheatley Park.
With best wishes for Christmas and the New Year,
Term 2 Bulletin
Dear Parents & Carers,
I am writing to let you know about the proposal to change the admission rules and arrangements for the academic year 2020-2021. The River Learning Trust intends to:
Insert a new rule 2 for children previously looked after outside England following a recommendation from the DfE to all Admission Authorities to adopt this rule.
The catchment category has been changed so that it is not (a) siblings and (b) other catchments now. These have been separated and expanded to take account of children attending a partnership (feeder) school as well.
The sibling category has been expanded for siblings + feeder and siblings only.
Distance from school to home will be measured using a straight line from 2020/2021 with the end point being the main reception at Wheatley Park School.
Finally, please note that the Admission Number remains at 180.
The draft Admissions Rules & Arrangements for 2020/2021 can also be found on the admissions page of our school website:
This consultation will run from Monday 3rd December 2018 to Monday 14th January 2019. Should you wish to respond to this consultation please contact Maddy Pallant by email at email@example.com
Term 2 has been a long term making it particularly challenging for students to achieve our attendance target of being over 96%.
Achieving 96% or over, means they are more likely to perform, on average, significantly better in their exams, providing them with many more opportunities when moving on to their next destinations. The great news is that:
436 students in Years 7 to 11 (47%) achieved 100% attendance in Term 2
33% of students in Years 7 to 11 have achieved 100% attendance since September with our Year 8 cohort leading the way with 38% achieving this milestone.
60% of students have improved their attendance or have remained at 100% attendance from Term 1 to Term 2
626 students in Years 7 to 11 (70%) achieved over our target of 96% attendance in Term 2
The average attendance for all students across years 7-11 is just under 95% with our Year 7 cohort still leading the way with an amazing average of just under 97%!
These achievements have been recognised in recent assemblies. The parent’s role in supporting this is not underestimated and we would like to pass on our thanks for your continued efforts during this academic year.
Next term students will be recognised once again for their good attendance and improvement in attendance as normal through certificates, special mentions during assemblies, alongside opportunities to win various further reward experiences. Finally, here are a few reminders:
Students can get a free breakfast in the bistro every morning from 7.45am
There are 190 days in a school year. Therefore there are 175 non-school days to enjoy family time, take holidays, make visits, go shopping or take other appointments. Thank you for helping make every day in school count.
If your child has six or more unauthorised late marks in the register over sixty sessions a referral may be made to the County Attendance Team which could ultimately lead to a fine - this OCC County Attendance Team Punctuality and Lateness leaflet provides further information.
Attendance: Everyone Learning, Every Day
Dear Students, Staff, Parents and Carers,
As Mr Martin has said in his newsletter for this term, your school has been much more actively involved with the River Learning Trust’s deep reserve of first-class educationalists and has seen a significant increase in seeking out, swapping with & implementing best practises across its secondary schools. The sole purpose behind this is to achieve a sustainably outstanding education for all our pupils. Your Governors believe that this relentless focus on the standards of education that your children receive is bearing fruit. The early indications from the initial data reports seem to suggest that our pupils’ progress and attainment is beginning to improve at a faster pace than before.
But it is not just the quality of the school’s education that has received input from the River Learning Trust during the last term; so has your Governing Body with the Trust’s Head of Governance and the Marlborough School’s Chair of Governors attending one of our scheduled meetings to review our effectiveness and practices in providing strategic oversight to Wheatley Park School. As some of you may remember how the dreaded end of term reports used to arrive just in time to be discussed with your parents thus spoiling the Christmas holiday, your Governors are awaiting the RLT's verdict rather nervously on how we can improve the work we do for you.
During the next term we will be conducting a detailed survey on what you think of our new uniform. Please may we ask that as many of you as possible complete it? We will be looking long and hard at what you say about it, so having many replies – even if it is to say “it’s fine” – is better than having to figure out what a silent majority may be thinking; relatively few replies from the “we absolutely hate it” and “we absolutely love it” extremes can cloud the decision making process!
With best wishes for the festive season and a very happy New Year.
Philip Baillieu & Richard Cave
Chair and Vice-Chair of Governors
A huge thank you to all parents/carers for supporting us through the transition to the new and more formal uniform. I’m sure you will agree that the students are looking considerably smarter and demonstrating one of our core values by wearing our uniform with pride. We have had some really positive feedback so far and will be doing a full survey with students and parents later in the year.
Can I request that you continue to check uniform with your children. In particular, as we move through the year, black jeans or trainers may need replacing if they fade to grey. It may also be tempting for some students to apply gel/acrylic nails, have their hair dyed, or get an additional piercing over the holiday period. We therefore want to politely remind all students of the following parts of the uniform code in particular:
Nails must be natural and nail varnish is not permitted
Hair must be natural colours and extreme cuts or patterns are not permitted
The only piercings allowed are a pair of plain stud earrings (one earring per ear)
If in any doubt about uniform expectations, do check the ‘uniform’ section under the ‘parents’ tab on our website or phone in.
Once again a huge thank you on behalf of staff for your overall support with uniform. Because students are consistently meeting our uniform expectations, this supports consistency in all other areas of school life, ultimately leading to a more orderly learning environment.

INTERVIEW WITH JULIA GREENHOUGH
Julia Greenhough, Head of Marketing at TrustFord, came to visit us on Thursday 29th November to talk to our sixth form students about her career.
She was interviewed by Mr West and talked about her career path and all the different High Street Retail senior roles she undertook before joining Ford Retail 3 years ago. Previously with brands such as Virgin Records, Safeway, Bhs, Cargo and Argos she was responsible for buying and marketing across a wide spectrum of product areas including music & entertainment, grocery , fashion, furniture and home products.
Julia gave the students some very sound and insightful advice and we hope our sixth formers will get some inspiration for their own future careers from Mrs Greenhough.
SIXTH FORM WINTER BALL
On Friday 7th December our Sixth Form students gathered together at the beautiful setting of Studley Wood Golf Club in Horton Cum Studly for the annual Winter Ball.
The room was beautifully set up with festive tables, Christmas tree, fireplace and garlands and felt very cosy and welcoming.
After an introduction by the Golf Club owner and Mr West, we enjoyed a sit down two-course Christmas dinner, after which our sixth formers all joined the dance floor and joyfully danced and sang the night away.
It was lovely seeing the students enjoying themselves after what has been a very long and busy term.

MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING
The Sixth Form Students held a coffee morning for MacMillan Cancer Support on Thursday 27th September.
They baked and sold cakes during break time and managed to raise £166.62.
A huge thank you to them!
Thank you to everyone who brought, baked, sold or ate cakes on Friday 16th November. We raised the amazing sum of £222.64 for Children In Need. Mr Price was the lucky winner of the wonderful Pudsey Cake baked by Ms Helen Sage.

On Tuesday 20 November all our Year 13 Literature students and Ms Middleton went to the Examination Schools on the High Street in Oxford to hear a lecture by the current Oxford Professor of Poetry (and poet laureate contender) Simon Armitage. Simon Armitage’s poems have been widely studied in schools and are on the current GCSE syllabus - Year 10 and 11 will know his poem ‘Remains’ about a traumatised British veteran of the Iraqi war. His lecture focused on the poem ‘Sir Gawain and the Green Knight’ which was written around 1400. At that time in history, the English language was very different to how it is today, so the first challenge of preparing for the lecture was to have a look at some of the poem and see if we could understand it! We all enjoyed the colourful 15th century illustration showing the Green Knight holding his newly decapitated head, but the language itself was a real challenge. Luckily Simon Armitage spent most of the hour-long lecture explaining his interpretation of the characters and ideas in the poem and talking about how he approached writing his own translation of it, rather than focusing on the language in too much detail. This was because the lecture was open to any member of the public - as Professor of Poetry he gives three public lectures every year during the university terms. There was a mix of people in the audience, although we spotted plenty of undergraduates making notes and several academics. We had been specially invited by the University so we had reserved seats, which was handy, as it was so well attended that there were people standing at the back. We all enjoyed the opportunity to hear one of the country’s leading poets speak. (You can listen to this lecture and all Simon Armitage’s previous public lectures by going to the University of Oxford website and searching for Professor of Poetry. His next lecture takes place on Monday 21st January.)

MUSIC FOR YOUTH PROMS
On 7th November, the Oxfordshire County Music Service took 500 children from 29 schools to perform in the Royal Albert Hall as part of the Music For Youth Proms. A third of the ensemble had special educational needs or disabilities, and were paired with students from mainstream schools. There were at least eight pupils (and maybe more) in the orchestra and choir from Wheatley Park School along with several from the John Watson School.
We played a twelve minute programme including “In Caelum Fero” by Karl Jenkins and “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman, a song that carries the theme of self-confidence and perseverance. The performance also included Makaton sign language and wheelchair ballet. The audience rewarded the performance with a two-minute standing ovation and was visibly moved by the inclusive nature of the performance!

Although set in Baltimore in the 1960's, these issues are still relevant in our society today.
The cast and crew have been working hard rehearsing acting, dancing and singing, creating sets and planning the technical side of the play. It is certainly going to be a whole school extravaganza!
The show will run from Wednesday 6th to Saturday 9th February and tickets will be on sale in January 2019.
We look forward to seeing you there!

On the day of the French trip, we had to be at school for 4:00am; it was an early start for all of us. It was just before 5am when three buses arrived at school and set off on our long journey to France.
Lots of us were also excited to visit both the waffle factory and a traditional French bakery.
We arrived at the Euro Tunnel at around 8:30, where we were then loaded onto our shuttle. Once inside the Euro Tunnel, some groups played games such as ‘splat’ and ‘wink murder’ to pass the time.
When we finally got to Lille at around 1pm, we saw a few familiar shops and lots of oddly shaped buildings too. Our teachers told us where we were allowed to go then let us loose!
We looked around the annual Christmas market and many other popular shops and places - such as the gaming shop and Decathlon - a few people were even brave enough to go on the ferris-wheel (it was really high!).
After we had visited the town, my group headed off to the waffle factory whilst Lily’s went to a bakery. They were both in a little village surrounded by countryside, where Lily’s group learned how to make bread and roll croissants, whereas mine, learned to make waffles.
On the way back we stopped off at a service station where we got snacks and supplies, then got back on the bus. We got home around 9:00, tired but still excited to tell our families all about the trip. Overall the French trip was an amazing experience and we thank our teachers for organising the trip and giving us this wonderful opportunity.

On Friday 16th November, Joe and myself were fortunate enough to go to Williams F1 in Wantage. When we arrived, we were taken to a conference room where we met out host. After being welcomed, we had a chance to speak to a few of the apprentices from different areas of engineering.
We then got to the best part, we had a chance to view Frank’s Garage, where Sir Frank Williams kept £50 Million pounds worth of Formula 1 cars to show to the public, not only did Frank display his Formula 1 cars, upstairs there was a lineup of all of Williams trophies won in the past.
Lastly, before we set off back to school, we got a tour around the advanced engineering factory, where not only Formula E cars were manufactured, but cars such as the Porsche Singer (a two year project) were being made. We also had a chance to see the Jaguar C-X75, the one used in the 007 Spectre movie.

In the summer of 2018 myself and 21 others went to Malawi to experience a new culture. Before the trip the team and I put in a lot of hours of work to prepare for our month away by doing bingo nights and disco’s for fundraising, weekends away, lots of exercise to practice and meetings to organise what we would do while out there. When we got to Malawi we split into two groups, both teams did the same things but at different times during the month. There were 4 main parts to our trip; these were called climatisation , trek, project and R&R. The first week was called the climatisation week were for 4 days we practiced trekking in the Zomba plateau, preparing ourselves for the real trek that was awaiting us. During our week we stayed at a campsite called the Trout Farm that was very low on the plateau and very very cold. While we were walking we got to experience some amazing views including Mount Mulanje, which was the mountain we were going to climb for our main trek. This week was very useful as it gave us a realisation of the work we were going to have to put in and the motivation to complete Mulanje.
The next week was project week: this was my favourite week; we worked in a local community and helped fishermen rest in building a library for Maziabanga school. This week was amazing as, during our time in the village, we were able to go to local communities and experience the culture, food and happiness around us. Each afternoon we went to a new place where we would help the community. One of my favourite things about the project week was we were able to learn new songs and learn the new language, we created a very close bond with the children as they played with all the girls hair and played football with the boys. After this amazing week we headed off to Mulanje where we went to climb the 3rd highest mountain in Mulanje, it took us 6 days to complete the whole trek. It was not as cold as Zomba and our tour guides were lovely, they taught a magic trick and a song to keep the motivation going throughout the week. On the 2nd day of the trek we climbed the peak of the mountain. It took us 2 hours and 30 minutes and the tour guides said we were the fastest world challenge team, which made us very happy. We finished that day off with a very cheesy macaroni cheese! The final week was the R&R also known as the rest and relaxation week, this was when for two days we went to a safari in Liwonde, where we camped around elephants, hippos and baboons. The other team were lucky enough to be able to see some lions during the game drive. We participated in two safaris, a boat and game and each one was completely different with different types of animals and a whole new atmosphere. We finished our trip at cape Mclear, part of Monkey Bay, where we stayed at an amazing hostel called the Funky Cichlid. During our stay at the hostel, we had lots of clothes made for us out of chitenjes, read books to the local children and even played a game of volley ball. This was an amazing part of the trip with beautiful views and great atmosphere.
In conclusion, I had an amazing time in Malawi; I learnt about a different type of culture and so many new things, which made this a trip of a lifetime.
I hope to go back and do more volunteering work out there in the future .
WORLD CHALLENGE 2020
We are very excited to have the opportunity to go to Mozambique and Swaziland. In the summer of 2020 we will be travelling to Africa on our World Challenge expedition. We haven’t planned our itinerary yet, but this trip might include staying in villages and supporting the villagers with building wells or possibly snorkelling with whale sharks to help with the conservation effort.
We have started to think about fundraising opportunities such as selling wrapping paper, babysitting or offering to do chores for family and neighbours. We will be planning some group fundraising events over the next two years such as a quiz or bingo night and some discos for Year 7 & 8 students.
Soon we will find out who we will be on a team, which we are all excited about. We are really looking forward to developing as a team as we work to fundraise and improve our fitness in preparation for the trip!

The Fiction Library in the JMC has been undergoing a facelift this term. New Library software has been installed and over 2200 fiction books have been catalogued to date. Each book is also being sorted by genre and the layout of the Library is in the process of being changed, to make choosing books a little easier. The Library is open at break and lunchtimes, for quiet reading and homework.
On 27th November, a team from Year 7 & 8 represented Wheatley Park School in the Kids’ Lit Quiz at Cokethorpe School in Witney. Our students were able to show off their diverse literary knowledge, picking up many prizes throughout the afternoon. They had an opportunity to chat to ten different authors, who were excited to talk about the inspiration for their latest work. Congratulations to “Team Wheatley Park”, who were the second placed state school in the competition.
On 18th October we celebrated the achievements of our upper school students with the annual Prize Giving evening. We would like to congratulate all of the students who received prizes and thank our speaker Tom Crick and our sponsors once again, for making this wonderful evening possible.
Below is a small selection of photographs from the event.
Prize Giving - 18th October 2018
In late November, we, along with 28 other Year 9 students began working towards our Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award. To achieve the award we need to complete 3 sections and an expedition. The three sections are Volunteering, Physical and Skill. For two sections of our choice, we have to complete for three months and the other for 6 months. We will be spending at least one hour a week on each activity.
Some examples of activities students are participating in for volunteering include: helping to support elderly people in our community, helping out with after school clubs and volunteering in a charity shop. Some of the physical activities students are doing include: football, the gym and running. Some of the new skills we will be learning include: science, learning a new game and creative arts. We are all very excited to have started our DofE experience and can’t wait to go on our expedition in June!

Our Year 13 BTEC Applied Scientists travelled to Bayer Labs in Reading to participate in a forensic science workshop. During the day the students learnt about DNA profiling in forensics and got to perform their own DNA profile analysis to compare DNA found at the crime scene to the DNA of suspects. The students really enjoyed the day and had the opportunity to experience what it would be like to work in the field of Life Sciences.
The students completed presentations at Kingerlee homes in Kidlington on how they would develop Shipton Quarry when it closes to meet the housing needs of the population. They came up with some exciting ideas and were filmed by a real film crew! Well done!

As you may know the Head Boy and Head Girl team has changed over since a new school year has begun.
The old team did an exceptional job and we feel we can also carry on the high standards of it and continue making a positive difference to the school and its environment.
To begin our week long application process everyone who wanted to apply to be head boy or head girl had to write a letter to Mr Martin explaining why we wanted to take on the role and also why we would be suited to it. After the deadline for all letters had arrived Mr Martin and other leading teachers began to read our letters and decided who to take through to the interview stage. On Monday a week after the applications were sent, we had individual interviews with Mr Martin, where he asked us questions about what we thought of the school and how we could help to improve it.
After the interview stage we had to deliver two speeches, one of these was to the student ministers and the second was to all of the sixth form students. The majority of us found speaking to the sixth formers more frightening as we knew many of the students personally. We all put forward our ideas and what we could bring to the team and we all felt we could bring different things to the Head Boy Head Girl Team which is why we work so well as a group.
We then had the nerve wracking wait to find out the news of our new roles and were delighted to find out we all had a place in the team!
As a team, we decided to split into different roles to be more effective as a whole. We have Ellie Gillion-webb, Scarlet Thomas, Joe Watson and Lucy Ashley in charge of the ‘improving the school environment’. We have Tom Kitchin involved in the ‘student support’ part and Scott Campbell as the President of the ‘Interact Club’.
The Interact Club is a group of students from Wheatley Park School which meets on Monday at lunch and our aim is to try and raise as much money for a chosen charity. This year our chosen charity has been Clic Sargeant which is a young person cancer charity which provides support for families who have a child being affected by cancer. This may be providing funding for accommodation or sending information to a child. So far we have had a few cakes sales, been to Heathrow for Children in Need, and the most recent event on Friday 14th December at Asda where we raised a grand total of £189.79. This will help so Clic Sargeant so much so thank you to anyone who has donated any money to such a worthy cause. It will be good to see everyone in their pink and black non-school uniform in aid of Clic Sargeant.

INTERACT HEATHROW VISIT FOR CHILDREN IN NEED
On Thursday 6th and Friday 7th December 100 Year 9 students went to the Oxford University Natural History Museum for science lectures by the Universiy. During the lectures, we learnt about the enzymes in our Christmas dinner and the working conditions of a fish's brain. Did you know? Fish have a memory similar to that of a human's and therefore can recognise up to 48 different human faces and other individual fish.
During the day, we had a forty-minute break in which we could have a tour of the museum. Whilst we were looking around the museum, we had a chance to hold a cockroach, a tarantula and a leaf insect. We definitely had fun holding the insects! Overall, I would like to conclude by saying that we had an euphoric experience.
PRIMARY SCHOOL NETBALL TOURNAMENT
Schools from the Wheatley Area Partnership Sports joined us at WPS to take part in the 2018 Year 5/6 Netball tournament. This year saw a significant increase in participation and it was fantastic to see the number of students involved. Our PE Leaders did an outstanding job of preparing teams on the day as well as umpiring the games and keeping score, they have been working hard at developing their leadership skills since September so it was a proud moment to see them flourish at the event.
Congratulations to all schools for showing such fantastic skills, determination and sportsmanship and to the winning schools that progress to the South Tournament.
October saw the return of the inter-form competitions for Year 7 and Year 8. These are always competitive and energetic events and this year didn’t disappoint. Initial stages took place during lessons leading to the winning tutor groups from each half of the year meeting in the final at lunchtime. The final was well attended for both Year 7 and Year 8 representatives all getting behind the tutor groups and players. Our Year 10 PE leaders led the final and oversaw 7KWT being crowned champions of 2018, congratulations to all!
Year 8 were lucky enough to have a guest umpire for the final, thank you to Mrs Jones! Congratulations to 8DBA, reigning champions!
In November a group of 15 students attended the South Oxfordshire Schools Cross Country. Everyone put in maximum effort and showed great resilience throughout. Some of the standout individual results were as follows:
Rayaan Dogar - 1st; Jamie Foster - 2nd; Ellie Dawson - 7th
Hagen Oxley - 8th; Johnny Caldicott - 9th
Well done to Rayaan and Jamie who qualify for the next round.
Year 10 have been working on their leadership and officiating skills in training since September but have managed to squeeze in a game against TOA. Taking two teams the Year 10 faced some challenging opposition, WPS mixed up their usual positions and team places but as usual in their true style they rallied together to put on a unified performance. Their commitment resulted in an overall win across the two games and a measure of their team spirit was shown when one player took a nasty fall grazing both knees but with the team rallying and a brave ‘can do’ spirit they carried on and continued with the unending effort they always give. Well done Year 10, very proud of you all.
Across the year the boys went undefeated in a tri-school tournament against Icknield and Chiltern Edge. They then won a nail- biter at Icknield, winning 25-20 including a great hat trick by Chris Hoffen. They then finished the year at the Oxfordshire Schools Banbury Tournament. Despite conceding late tries and they played some superb rugby to finish the season with a great 15-0 win against John Mason school. Across the year the boys have played 7 games, winning 4 and losing just once with 21 tries scored and conceding 11.
The Year 10 boys football team have continued their dominance within Oxfordshire. In the National Cup so far they have comfortably progressed against The Grange School, winning 5-0. They then played a much tighter fixture against Lord Williams’ school, winning 2-0. Their next opponents are Cherwell who they beat 5-1 last year and will be hoping for similar success again.
