Warwick Road School is situated in an area of mainly Victorian terrace houses, populated predominantly by Muslim families of Gujerati or Pakistani origin. 96% of our 292 pupils have English as their second language. Most families are pious followers of Islam and our pupils benefit from generally secure and supportive home backgrounds, set within a close-knit, and culturally active community.

We have a supportive attitude towards the first language and the religious/cultural values of all our children.

The school faces significant difficulties in developing pupil’s fluency in English, but we can nevertheless boast high curriculum standards, particularly in the core subjects. Our National Test Results are excellent. We were listed amongst the National Top 20 “Most Improved Schools” in 1998. In order to achieve these standards the school has adopted a set of strategies emphasising whole class/large group work requiring intensive interactive teaching from our staff. This formal, but interactive teaching style pre-dated the National Literacy Strategy. However, it is clearly a good fit to the methods now advocated there.

The school was inspected by OFSTED in February 1996 and October 1998. The first report was satisfactory. The report in 1998 was good.

The school buildings are largely Victorian and, generally sound. Three new KS2 classrooms were modernised in 1989 and the Infant Base has just been re-opened after a major refurbishment. There is a staff of 10 mainstream teachers and 3.5 EMAG teachers. We also have 2.5 bilingual support and staff and a community liaison worker.


Our overriding aim is to ensure that all children are helped to perform to the best of their abilities in all areas of the school's life

In order to achieve this aim we give priority to the following.

1. Expecting the highest quality of teaching and care from all our staff.

2. Expecting and supporting the highest standards of achievement from all our pupils, whatever their level of ability.

3. Continually reviewing and improving the quality of teaching and learning.

4. Providing a broad, balanced, and stimulating curriculum within the framework of the National Curriculum.

5. Providing a hard-working, purposeful, safe and happy environment for pupils and for staff.

6. Incorporating the religious, cultural and linguistic backgrounds of our pupils into the process of teaching and learning.

7. Promoting the spiritual, moral, social and physical development of all pupils, through direct instruction, example and individual care.

8. Preparing all children equally for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of their future life.


To develop a respectful, supportive and trusting partnership between the school, parents and the community in which the children live.

To ensure that there is effective liaison between school, parents and all external agencies involved in the education and welfare of our pupils.
