How other schools have used their credits

In order to support our school improvement planning (SIP) and get the year off to a solid start we used our Peer review, Red Kite Credits and head teacher performance management in a coherent way. In October 2021 Rob Pye undertook a peer review full day working with a number of Highfield staff and exploring our school improvement (SIP) COVID recovery plan at Key Stage 2. The following day he focused on a mathematics KS1 and Recep-tion deep dive and worked with more Highfield staff. This was another (SIP) priority. Then the following week Rob was asked to advise at my head teacher performance management which of course focused on my leadership of the (SIP). It was a very useful experience.
