Together, we must put the things that matter first and ensure that every school is a brilliant school and every child becomes a brilliant learner!

In many schools, school improvement and professional development has been put on the back-burner. Schools don't know where to find the support they need and for a lot of them don't necessarily understand/think they need it especially in a world where money is tight and with teachers/teaching being promoted as the answer to life, the universe and everything! Many schools also lack the experience associated with good quality assurance and the ability to moderate judgements about what is great, what isn't and what to do about it. The danger, for schools in a world without support is that they simply don't identify their training needs until things go wrong or unless OFSTED calls. Sadly, the national, and in many places the local, debate seems to hinge around Academies, Free Schools and OFSTED and there simply aren't the people talking about school improvement and developing and sharing a coherent vision for learning!
