We recognise that whilst schools invest heavily in training and development linked to subject knowledge and professional skills; the success of any school is linked to the quality of its people. At Focus, we know how important it is for people to be developed and challenged in order to deliver their best – we are committed to it with our own team.
‘Coming together is beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.’
Just thought I would let you know our good news. We had a geography Ofsted inspection yesterday and got outstanding for our curriculum!! They said that there are very few schools which are managing to get it right. Whilst the focus was on geography, it was clearly a reflection of our whole school curriculum approach. Thanks for your support and expertise in helping us develop the curriculum! Headteacher, Leeds
We introduced the Learning Challenge curriculum this year; it is already showing an impact in terms of levels of pupil engagement, curiosity etc. We also had a training day to prepare us for our forthcoming inspection- comments like 'He delivered a hard message in a way that made you feel you could do it' and 'What an inspiration!' were made by teachers after the day. I also recently attended a course on preparing for inspection which I found both practical and useful. Many thanks to you all for the very high quality of your work- which is making a difference in schools. Headteacher, Leeds
