“It enabled the staff to focus on their strengths as well as those areas that need development, at a class and whole-school level. Joan’s session with the staff has enabled the staff to reflect on the good practice that is currently in place within the school.
It provided excellent ideas of how to take some areas forward such as the importance of effective questioning, differentiation and classroom displays. The session was beneficial in that it reminded staff of the ‘bigger picture’ – whole-school issues and not just classroom issues.
It helped staff understand the role of leadership and management within the school and the expectations placed on Principals/senior leadership”
