CHALLENGE PARTNERS REVIEW
As a school we are always reviewing and appraising our own practice. As part of the Challenge Partners Network of Excellence, we invite an external team of senior practitioners to undertake a thorough review of our work. In addition to conducting a full review of all aspects of the school, this is also an opportunity to showcase areas of excellence. This year, it was equality and diversity and last year it was mental health and emotional well-being.
"The positive relationships between staff and students allow for a highly effective learning environment. Students are mutually supportive of each other and are not afraid to take risks in their learning. They are exceedingly proud of their school and when one was asked if he liked his school, he promptly responded, “Yes – 100%!”"
"Behaviour for learning is excellent in lessons because teachers have high expectations of students who aspire to meet these expectations. This is reinforced by excellent behaviour around the school where students are courteous, wear their uniform immaculately and respond quickly to staff requests."
"The school’s drive to embody a more open attitude to diversity, and therefore counter negativity, is seen in the shared values that permeate the school. Celebrating differences, raising self-esteem and embracing diversity are behind many of the initiatives that the school becomes involved in, such as Stonewall and LGBT History Month."
