Go Plus Feedback
Mrs Julia Harley, Headteacher, Northampton Schools for Girls
"We wanted to re-energise and enthuse solidly ‘good’ teachers to support them to be consistently outstanding, but we also wanted to develop teachers who were sometimes ‘good’ but more often had significant weaknesses. The Go Plus programme was perfect because it is not an ‘off the shelf ’ approach, it is highly personalised to the individual teacher."
