So the league tables have come out. I don’t believe any headteacher who says they wouldn’t care where their school stood on the league tables. How could you not feel a sense of pride knowing that your school was in one of the top twenty in the county? Of course you would!
Yes, perhaps we all don’t agree with the assessment methods or how the results are tallied but at the end of the day we are happy when our pupils achieve highly. We are happy when our school’s name is listed as one of the best.
Of course we all know that there is so much more to an outstanding education. As schools we look at how best to create a dynamic and well rounded child. We are always looking at what is best for each and every child. It is not just about results. However, I do believe that with all the right ingredients the results will naturally just come alongside.
This is just my thought at the moment….I wanted to write it down so I can follow up with more when I get some more time…..
I know already that this will be a controversial topic!
