This award fits in very well with the school’s motto: Engage, Enrich, Excel and with their commitment to provide a supportive platform for professional reflection, to nurture positive relationships which underpin excellence in teaching and learning, to encourage pro-active learning and problem-solving and to build on the already outstanding achievements of the school.
School Coach and teacher Dawn Wallace says, ‘As a school we are delighted to receive our Bronze Award and celebrate this stepping stone in our coaching journey.’
School Governor and Professional Coach, Jo Brill, attended the presentation and said, ‘I believe that coaching can provide the tools and approaches that will take how we educate to a new level. We are excited to be at the forefront of this in UK schools.’
Coachmark has been developed to recognise and celebrate high quality professional learning through a coaching style of professional conversation.
There are 3 levels of award: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each level requires that certain criteria are met. The process is developmental and provides clear ‘next steps’ and an action plan to sustain good practice and to further develop coaching in your setting.
