Kingsmead LogoKingsmead School has recently achieved accreditation for transforming practice under SSAT's (Schools, Students and Teachers), Framework for Exceptional Education.

The Framework for Exceptional Education is a self-review and planning tool incorporating SSAT's 30 years of experience in school improvement. Co-developed with a group of high-performing schools and reviewed by leading academics, the framework supports schools in quality-assuring their work and sharing effective practice. 

To achieve accreditation as transforming in practice, Kingsmead School was reviewed by another high-performing school and an independent moderator from SSAT. SSAT's Chief Executive, Sue Williamson comments "For a school to be accredited for transforming practice is a real credit to their team and the quality of the work that they are doing."

Yvonne Barry, Headteacher of Kingsmead School, said "The above just confirms what an outstanding school this is. Kingsmead always strives for excellence and works with other schools so that all can achieve this.”
