Coachmark is the National Quality Mark for coaching in education and  recognises the high quality coaching practice in schools.
Ruth Armitage, Lead Professional (Coach), together with the dedicated  coaches have already positively  impacted in raising the quality of learning and teaching, within only six months of beginning their coaching journey.

The school prides  itself on its coaching scheme. Coaches work with colleagues to enable high quality conversational dialogue about learning and teaching practice.

Congratulations to Phoenix High School on achieving their award.

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.
