Celebrating Staff Achievements
Mrs Farooq has successfully gained The Certificate of School Business Management (CSBM). This is an accredited professional qualification developed by the National College for Teaching and Leadership. She started this course in May 2013 and has worked incredibly hard over the last 18 months to complete it. The programme uses a blended learning approach including face-to-face, online learning and self-directed study. It required completion of school-based case studies, projects and activities which support individual school development plans. Mrs Farooq is now hoping to go on to study the Diploma in School Business Management.
Miss Cartwright graduated from Bradford University undertaking a degree in Education Studies, obtaining a 2:1. She had a lovely day celebrating with her family and friends.
Last week Miss Foster achieved her Reading Recovery accreditation. Miss Foster has been travelling to Oldham all year to study for the internationally-recognised, masters-level qualification that will enable her to teach struggling readers in our school. We congratulate all her hard work.

Mrs Booth completed The Leeds Metropolitan Postgraduate Certificate in SEN Coordination covering all the requirements of the National Award. This programme contributed to Mrs Booth’s professional development working as Special Needs Coordinators (SENCO) in school. It supported the development of a range of management and team working skills which enables Mrs Booth to raise the achievements of pupils with Special Educational Needs more effectively. It also enables her to support the principles of multi-agency working and the involvement of key stakeholders such as parents and carers. As a result Mrs Booth has the ability to use evidence about learning, teaching and assessment in relation to pupils with SEN to inform practice.
