Top Marks for Teachers!
Northfield School & Sports College staff are celebrating their latest award for teaching. This month the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT) has recognised the school as a Lead Practitioner Learning Centre. There are only 4 such schools in the country and Northfield is the only one in the North of England. Northfield has been chosen as a Lead Practitioner Learning Centre because the SSAT recognises the high quality of teachers or ‘expert practitioners’ at the school.
The SSAT recognised that Northfield had:
- Strong and recent evidence of good to outstanding outcomes for their students with a proven track record of school improvement
- A well-managed team of Lead Practitioners who are improving teaching within the classroom and provide an innovative and inspirational learning environment for students
- Been judged by Ofsted to have Outstanding Leadership and Management
- Demonstrated an ability to deliver training and support to other teachers
Headteacher, Craig Walker said “I am delighted with the award. It’s very gratifying that a prestigious body such as the SSAT has recognised the quality of teaching at the school.”
With its new status as Lead Practitioner Learning centre, Northfield School will continue to provide support to teaching staff from schools across the country and internationally.
This month saw Northfield School play host to a delegation of Chinese Headteachers from the Chengdu province. For the past two years Northfield has worked with Newcastle University to promote International Leadership. Last year Headteacher, Craig Walker travelled to Chongquin as a guest of the Chonqguin University to deliver a week’s training for Chinese Headteachers. The school has also worked with Headteachers from Saudi Arabia.
