Achieve, Believe and Celebrate

Marsh Green is an average-sized primary school serving a highly deprived area of Wigan in the North West of England. I began as Head in January 2012 following very poor SAT results the previous Summer. Staff morale had plummeted and there was a lack of clear direction and purpose. The management structure was very weighty with a Head, a Deputy, two Assistant heads and two TLR posts. This underwent a major restructure with both Assistant head posts being discontinued and the TLR posts being changed to more effectively meet the needs of the school. Training was undertaken by all staff and a greater emphasis of accountability introduced to ensure everyone was responsible for the success of pupils. The Governing Body also underwent a major restructure which enabled a new positive focus to be developed. Support was available from the Local Authority through regular visits from a neighbouring headteacher in the role of LLE.
