Case Studies

  • We have received support from St John Bosco as part of our improvement journey. The entire process was extremely supportive, giving staff the relevant training and leaders the opportunity to develop their monitoring skills to ensure maximum impact and rapid progress is made every day. During the visits to school, instant feedback and live modelling was given to staff when observing, ensuring the effective delivery of RWI. The process made a significant impact on our school; staff gained confidence and a sound understanding, children made significant progress and, when we graduated, we felt equipped to continue on our journey.  Mrs Jo Harvey - St Anne's  CE Primary School
