School’s Disabled Accessibility
The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) covers many areas of everyday life, including education and access to goods and services. The provisions in the DDA to do with schools relate to disabled pupils and their parents and carers. At Horn Park we strive to make reasonable adjustments to procedures and policies.
The school is situated within Horn Park and is not on a road with a steep gradient. The nearest mainline Railway Station is Lee and there is a bus stop within 100m of the school. Classrooms are spread across the ground floor and first floor of this two storey building. A lift will provide access to the first floor, by request.
This venue does have its own car park with a tarmas surface. This may be used as a designated drop off point or alternatively for longer stay visits disabled car parking spaces are available.
Access to the main entrance
The main doors open away from you (push) and are double width. Please not that these doors are heavy. There are no steps leading into main office.
At present, there is not a hearing assistance system and the lighting levels are varied. Motorised scooters are allowed in public parts of the venue, although visitors must note that they cannot charge scooters or wheelchairs inside the school building.
There are accessible toilets located at the school office, designated for public use.
Governors & Trustees
Each Compass school has a local governing body composed of a group of volunteers drawn from the community, each bringing a range of skills, expertise and professional experience. Our Governors provide essential links between the school, parents/carers and the local community. Governors work with staff and parents in an atmosphere of co-operation to provide the best possible framework for educating our children. They are involved in all aspects of school life and meet regularly with leadership teams.
Governors fulfil their responsibilities by:
- Supporting the school and its ambition by working strategically to develop and implement vision and ethos;
- Ensuring that the children are receiving the best education and achieve the best outcomes by monitoring the quality of teaching and standards across the school;
- Setting a budget and making sure that financial resources made available to the school are used effectively;
- Accounting to all stakeholders for the school’s performance and for the decisions they make.

Mary has taught in early years and primary settings, and became a head teacher in Greenwich in 2000.

What is the pupil premium?
The Pupil Premium provides additional funding on top of the main funding a school receives. It is targeted at students from disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as pupils from less deprived families. Currently, the premium is worth £1320 and goes to students who are currently on Free School Meals (FSM) or has been registered for (FSM) in the past six years, students in care, who have been looked after by local authorities for more than six months also continue to qualify for the Pupil Premium.
Why is there a pupil premium?
Students who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in their school career have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible. In 2009-10 GCSE statistics showed that around a third of students who have been on Free School Meals in the previous six years achieved five or more A*- C grades, compared to more than two thirds of their fellow students.
How will the impact of the spending of the Pupil Premium be measured?
At Horn Park School, the usual cycle of data collection and the monitoring and tracking of attainment, will be used to inform progress and enable the early identification of need, support and appropriate intervention.
Schools receive designated pupil premium funding to support vulnerable children within the school. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support and raise the attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.
At Horn Park we believe that P.E. and competitive sport contributes to the holistic development of our children. Through participation, children are able to build and demonstrate our key values of resilience, perseverance, respect, unity, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others. Physical Education (PE), is therefore an integral part of the curriculum at Horn Park School.
We continue to strive towards creating an ethos where physical education, physical activity and competitive sport are a part of our children’s everyday life. Enabling them to develop the skills, knowledge and abilities to go on and lead healthy, happy and active lifestyles.
