If you and your colleagues are determined to get your school to ‘outstanding’, the biggest boost comes from looking outside your own school and learning from leaders who have already guided their schools to outstanding.
Outstanding schools excel at what they do, not just occasionally, but for a high percentage of the time. Nothing is a barrier to achievement. Pupils are put first and strong values and high expectations are applied every day, outstanding schools provide consistently outstanding teaching, rich opportunities for learning and they invest heavily in their staff development and communities. Many of our special schools are now at least good. For these schools, the challenge is to get every pupil to achieve.
This programme will take delegates to outstanding schools in the network and explore how they reached such an advanced level, how they sustain that level, and how they progress even further. There will also be chance to attend a day of the SSAT National Conference .
