When you walk into a “great” school as I have done so many times over the last fifteen years, you see the golden threads of excellence that weave their way through everything the school does and raises these brilliant learning places into a special category... MAGIC!

These wonderful places are responsive to the developmental needs of the children and young people through a rigorous, relevant, rewarding and differentiated curriculum, stimulating and engaging teaching and learning, a collaborative and problem-solving approach to behaviour and discipline, and intelligent accountability systems that drive a rigorous and uncompromising approach to ensuring that every child is a reader, writer and can handle number by the time they are eight, a brilliant little learner by the time they leave primary school and on a pathway to learning success by the time they leave secondary school. It isn't rocket science we must create the conditions that nurture and support these magic places and share and network and learn so that the magic becomes commonplace!
