Welcome back to the start of 2014 I hope you all managed to have some quality family time despite the challenges brought by the weather. Over the Christmas break I reflected that as the Headteacher of EPCS I will have been in post for a year. It seemed appropriate to reflect on how the school has changed since I started and most importantly what we still need to work on to be judged as a good school. With this in mind I have started the term by talking to students, with the help of staff, in both Discovery and Destiny about where we are currently and how the school can improve further. We also discussed what an inspection would focus on if we were to be re-inspected. I believe it was important to do this as there is still some confusion as to what evidence is used to form the judgements and students do ask me and staff from time to time. I have attached the PowerPoint used in the assembly for your information so you can see what was shared with students and staff.
