School Progress Leads To Award

Some of the pupils from Healing school who contributed to the 2015 results.

National recognition has been handed to Healing School for 'exceptional results'.

Analysis by the Schools, Students and Teachers network (SSAT) puts Healing in the top 10 per cent nationally for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results at primary school and their key stage 4 results.

The school will receive the organisation's Educational Outcomes award to recognise its achievements.

Principal Mark Knapton was delighted by the findings.

"The progress award is provides further evidence of the success of the school," said Mr Knapton.

"To be in the country's 10 per cent is a proud achievement, particularly for progress. That's what parents want to know – that their child is making the most of their potential and the school is among the best in the country at enabling them to do so."

The SSAT award will be presented at a regional celebration event held to draw attention to the work of high-achieving, improving and innovating schools and teachers.

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT, said: "It's my great pleasure to commend Healing School on their excellent 2015 performance, and to have the opportunity to highlight and share their great work at the SSAT Educational Outcomes celebration evening.

"I have the privilege of visiting a lot of schools and I am always impressed by the creativity of teachers in engaging and inspiring their students.

"I hope that SSAT's Educational Outcomes awards will highlight the professionalism, commitment and hard work of the leaders, teachers and students at Healing School.

"Recognising and sharing successes like this is at the heart of SSAT's mission, so I'm delighted to congratulate Healing School on its achievement."
