One of the awards was a NQT (Newly Qualified Teacher) Support Award.
As a school the teachers and support staff are committed to supporting colleagues new to the profession both in terms of teachers at Cathedral School and also in the wider community. This year we were asked by the local authority to host all the primary NQTs in Southwark, over 3 terms, focusing on positive behaviour management strategies. NQTs are Newly Qualified teachers in the first year of the profession. NQTs spent a day at school, observing lessons and attending sessions run by senior leaders.
In addition to this Mr Antcliffe was asked to lead a session for Southwark NQTs on the teaching of science.
We are so pleased to receive this award as it recognises our commitment to nurturing the next generation of teachers.
Congratulations to Miss Dace and Mr Morrell who won Excellent Teacher Awards. Their awards recognised the consistently high quality of their teaching. A quality assessor observed them in their teaching and judged other factors across their criteria. These awards are highly deserved for their outstanding practice. Well done to them!
The school won an award for Drama and Performing Arts which recognised all the excellent outcomes and learning in this area. The End of Year shows, the Cathedral services, choir, the Menier Theatre opportunties, the EYFS Nativities, Class Assemblies, Jazz Workshops were all considered when the panel considered us for this award. It is well deserved recognition for the all staff involved in the delivery and organisation of these fabulous opportunities. No other school has won this award before in Southwark and it is a testament to the broad and creative curriculum at this school.
Lastly, Southwark also gave us an award for being in the top 1% of the country’s schools when looking at the progress that pupils make here. This measure takes into account where the children are in KS1 and compares it to the achievement of pupils at the end of Year 6. The learning that takes place in those intervening years is among the best in the country.
