Article By: SSAT & Abbey Grange Published Date: 10/01/2017 Abbey Grange Church of England Academy has recently become one of the first schools in the country to be accredited 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, Abbey Grange C of E Academy 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." Jon Norden, Principal, added, "We are very proud to receive this recognition of the importance that we place on developing our teachers’ professional development. Equipping our colleagues to constantly reflect on and improve their teaching and learning means that our students get the help they need to make great progress at Abbey Grange."
