Challenge Partners

To challenge ourselves as a school and to ensure that our school improvement plans are the best they can be to ensure the best outcomes for our children, we are part of  Challenge partners. We were reviewed by a team from Challenge partners in January 2016, affirming the school improvement journey we are on. We have three members of staff who are trained by Challenge partners to lead reviews in other national schools Mrs Saville (Headteacher), Miss Redman (Senior Leader) and Miss Igoe which is excellent professional development but also hugely benefits our school. Miss Redman has already been part of a review team of an outstanding school in Worcestershire and a school in London. Mrs Saville has reviewed an outstanding school in Cornwall and a school in Nottingham. Being part of Challenge partners means that we can share best practice and learn from others, share training and reflect on our school improvement, the benefits are enormous. The professional dialogue and learning that takes place through a review is excellent. We want to demonstrate that our school is proactive in working with others, learning from others and being self-reflective and keen to challenge ourselves to ensure that we are achieving the best outcomes for all of our pupils.

As a leadership team and school team we are reaching for the stars…
