Leighton Primary School is a two-form entry school in the Ortons, Peterborough. On her appointment as the new headteacher, Emma Ward and her Senior Leadership Team recognised the need to strengthen their working relationships in order to become collaborative as a team, improve their communication and look to each other to develop their ways of working. That's when Emma approached SPP.
The purpose of these sessions is to provide training for middle and senior leaders in schools already using the SPP model of peer review. We are delighted to be offering live virtual sessions to allow schools and partnerships to train additional peer reviewers or improvement champions, or to offer a chance to refresh the knowledge of those already trained in these roles as part of SPP.
