Christ Church Primary School is a large school in Lichfield.
How the school has used Focus Education
We have used Focus Education for a number of years, accessing a wide range of their services. We became aware of their services five years ago when they delivered curriculum training for the local authority. We thought the course was excellent and have continued to use their services since then, including:
- A central training course for Ofsted inspection delivered to the Head and Deputy Head.
- Consultancy training on developing the curriculum.
- Publications to support SED writing and curriculum planning.
This year we have worked with a consultant on whole school improvement. He worked in school with the leadership team and led a whole staff training day. This enabled us to develop our ideas and improve our practice. It has had a very positive impact within school. Consequently, we have now booked further consultant time with him to support us in moving our school to ‘Outstanding’.
The training and resources we have purchased have always been excellent. It is good to work with consultants who have a deep understanding of current educational practice and the skills to adapt them in training, meeting the needs of our school. The fact that the services are delivered across the country and in a wide variety of settings, means that there is a breadth of experience that is second to none.
Focus Education is a family-run organisation providing advice and educational support to primary schools and academies. We’re a family company and are committed to enabling schools and academies to be the best that they can be.
