We are delighted to announce that Stamford Welland Academy was awarded both the Secondary Geography Quality Mark and the International School’s Award during the Autumn term. In addition to this, a group of staff also received accreditation as Lead Practioners.
The Quality Mark from the Geography Association is valid for three years and recognises excellence in teaching and learning geography. We would like to thank Mr. Mark Wilson for his determination in securing this award for Stamford Welland Academy.
To achieve the International School’s Award, we had to prove that we run a number of international activities throughout the year, and that there was an ongoing international theme running throughout the school. We would like to thank Kate Moss for her efforts to ensure this recognition was granted to the school.
The Lead Practioner status recognises how school staff have developed professionally through a range of methods. You can read more information about the Lead Practitioner qualification and how it is supported by the Ofsted framework here. We are very proud to now have a large group of Lead Practioners within our school providing strength and leadership to our teaching staff.
These are Dominic Brister, Steve Bull, Julie Chong, Gemma Gaynor, Sharon Gostling, Tony Hayes, Sue Lomas , Kate Moss, Karen Mason, Julie Nolan, Jess Thomas, Nicola Thorogood, Jenny Webber.
We are very proud of all our teaching staff who have achieved these awards. This is the end result of determination, hard work and ‘going the extra mile’ for our school.
