Friday All Day - Attended an HMI conference with Mike Johnson and Neil Payne to focus on Pupil Premium students in secondary schools. The day helped us reflect on the College's provision and outcomes, confirm what we currently do well and consider areas for improvement. The Board of Directors will need to agree a link Director to focus on the montoring of Pupil Premium students. One of the outcomes from the conference was to create a schedule of self-evaluation questions to support our approach to continuous improvement.
