16 Jul Pendle Vale College nationally recognised
Pendle Vale College has recently achieved accreditation in four areas for transforming practice under SSAT’s 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, Pendle Vale College 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.”
Steve Wilson, Headteacher of Pendle Vale College, said, ”We are incredibly proud of these achievements as it is recognition of the hard work and commitment from staff and students. In addition, we have also received SSAT’s Educational Outcomes Award 2017 for being in the top 20% of schools nationally for student progress in the 2017 end of KS4 exams.”
