Securing Excellence

At the time I joined Sauncey Wood as Head in September, 2005, I think it could honestly be described as a “failing school”, not in the OFSTED sense (the school was actually graded as “Satisfactory” at this time, having been put into a category in 2001 and then reinspected in 2003)but in the real, everyday sense. The school was haemorrhaging children to such a degree that just 69 children were attending a school supposed to hold 210. Nobody wanted to send their children to the school, not even parents who lived barely yards away. I was the seventh Head in 3 years and clearly had a very big and very challenging job on my hands.
