Case Study A huge impact on a primary school with great ambitions 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. Case Study A diverse and mature partnership of schools with peer review at its heart Experienced headteacher and SPP facilitator Steve Wilks has been integral to the development and delivery of SPP in East London, firstly as part of the Seven Kings Partnership of Schools where he served as a headteacher working with other schools to embed SPP into ways of working. Case Study Using fully virtual school-to-school peer review to enable action planning for improvement Shakespeare Primary School, a member of the Schools Partnership Programme (SPP), is among the many schools that have benefitted from the SPP Rapid Response peer review model, designed to help schools respond to issues at speed and move forward with their improvement needs despite the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. Shakespeare Primary’s application of the model’s framework and principles not only enabled them to continue to address existing issues in the midst of lockdown but also to seek that essential collaboration and feedback in a more efficient yet remote fashion.
