Over the past 6 years, Paddington Academy has made exceptional progress and has been recently graded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted. We want to ensure that our students have a consistently outstanding experience and always feel safe. We want ensure that all students are happy.
Even though Paddington Academy is an oustanding school, beyond the gates students still find themselves in sutiations that might affect their friendships, relationships and emotional feelings. This can range from family problems, to bullying, to basic questions and concerns.
This is why in 2012 we decided to make Paddington Academy a "Telling School". Telling Schools is a safe way for students to express their concerns without having the worry of what others might think or how others might treat them for telling the truth. Students are able to access the Telling Schools Website online at anytime of day or night and inform the school of bullying or anything that might make them uncomfortable. It is not an advice site, blog or forum, but simply a safe way to tell the truth. Adolescence is a difficult time for many young people and through Telling Schools we aim to make Paddington Academy not only a fantastic place to be educated, but also a stress-free environment.
