School to School Support
Byron Court School strongly believes in ‘school to school support’ to achieve and sustain excellence in teaching and learning. As such Byron Court has a leadership structure that has the capacity to promote professional development within and outside the school. We have been working with the Institute of Education for the past three years delivering the NCTLs National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL) and the National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership (NPQML). These have had significant impact on individual leaders and their schools, improving performance and raising standards of teaching and learning.
Additionally, members of the Leadership Team have worked alongside colleagues in other Brent schools. We currently deliver bespoke professional consultancy and seminar sessions in Teaching and Learning, Early Years, Assessment and Leadership. Some schools that have participated in this joint practice development have been: Avigdor Hirsch Torah Temimah Primary School, Kilburn Park Primary, Harlesden, Fryent, Uxendon, Malorees Juniors, Mitchell Brook Primary and Oliver Goldsmith.
Feedback from these partnerships has been very positive:
“…one of the most impressive examples of 'distributed leadership' in practice that I’ve come across yet, in the flesh or in print.”
“…you managed to lead the school through simultaneous huge change and challenge in the human, environmental and financial spheres”
“Quite inspiring – and gave me a lot of useful ideas and things to think about."
“Thank you very much indeed, both for this and for your fantastic support and training this morning, which was extremely well-received and appreciated by everyone!”
“Wow - this is amazing work! Thank you again very much indeed.”
“Thank you so much, our member of staff has benefited enormously from observing one of your outstanding teachers for the morning. He came back so inspired.”
