School Improvement

A key part of our school improvement journey is our membership of Challenge Partners, a national Network of Excellence. Challenge Partners provides an annual professionally-led peer review focused on teaching and learning. Each year we will be welcoming external reviewers; a lead reviewer who is Ofsted trained and head teachers or senior leaders from other schools across the country.

Our last review was in March 2023. The review looked across the whole school and focused on the strengths and areas for development in;

  • Leadership across the school 
  • Quality of teaching and learning

We are pleased with the areas the review team identified as our strengths and are committed to working on the areas for improvement in our determined ambition for the continual development of William Byrd.
