Quality Assurance Programme
Further to our Ofsted reports found here, we have a rigorous Quality Assurance programme which is led by our School Improvement Partner, Peter Johnson.
Prior to Peter, our SIP was Mick Waters. A former head teacher, Mick Waters works closely with teachers and leaders in schools, MATs and local authorities to support the development of teaching approaches and curriculum to ensure the best learning outcomes for children. For some years he was Director of Curriculum for England, based at the Qualification and Curriculum Authority (QCA), and before that held the post of Chief Education Officer for the City of Manchester. He is also invited to work at a policy level with government in different parts of the world.
