Guildhall Graduation

It was a pleasure to meet Dame Professor Alison Peacock this weekend in London at the graduation ceremony for the Chartered College. I was very proud to join fellow leaders from around the country who successfully achieved their Chartered Leadership status qualification. Our graduation ceremony was held at the prestigious Guildhall; it was a very grand affair, and a lovely celebration of two years of hard work, especially during the pandemic. This qualification is challenging but hugely worthwhile and beneficial to the education profession. 


Engaging with evidence is so very important to teaching and learning, as well as curriculum development. Equally as important is exploring the changing shape of evidence and the need to be adaptable to suit different contexts. What works on a sunny afternoon in June may not work on a dark, wet morning in November. We need to be adaptable, flexible, resilient, innovative and creative.


Across our family of schools we use an evidence-informed approach to school improvement and always ensure we do what is best for our young people, in all our schools across our community. We are very fortunate to have such amazing staff teams in all of our schools, and colleagues who share a restless pursuit of what works for our young people because all our children deserve the very best education.


Batley = brilliant education for all.
