SHADOW BOARD OF GOVERNORS - PEN PORTRAITS
Bev has been a Headteacher of St Mary’s CE Primary School for the past 3 years and her schools most recent Ofsted Inspection in June 2018 recognised that she had readily identified where the school needed to improve and took effective action and that she has provided a clear and consistent direction for the school and managed staff changes well. She was identified as having an accurate understanding of the school’s strengths and areas for development. All the staff who responded to the Ofsted survey said that they were proud to be a member of the school.
Bev has developed a Collaborative Group of schools that now work to a common development plan and have grown their capacity to enable the four schools to support each other in all areas of school improvement. She has participated in the Peer to Peer programme of school improvement with the Hales Valley Teaching Alliance, as well as with the Diocese programme for school effectiveness for Headteachers, honing her skills as a school improvement leader.
Together with Matt Osborne (Dudley MBC Head of School Improvement) and Tim Reid (Worcester Diocese Head of School Improvement) Bev has already supported the new Headteacher at St. Margaret’s at Hasbury through the turbulent time of change described in other parts of this application. This support has clearly started to move standards forward by developing teaching and learning through the support and skills that her staff have been able to offer.
As a Headteacher of a church school, with previous experience of working in church schools, as well as having the experienced SIAMS (Bev’s school presently has an outstanding SIAMS judgment) we and the diocese feel she has the skills that will be able to continue to support the Headteacher at St. Margaret’s to ensure the golden thread of Christian Distinctiveness is embedded throughout the school.
