Coventry’s Frederick Bird Primary School has been featured in 2016/17’s Parliamentary Review as an example of excellent teaching and learning practice.
The school sits alongside the Prime Minister and a small number of outstanding schools in a document that looks back on the year in schools and Westminster.
Frederick Bird’s Headteacher, Juliet Silverton, said: “I’m thrilled that our school was featured in the Parliamentary Review as an example of best practice.
“It just goes to show that the hard work of all of our staff, pupils and parents in making Frederick Bird a brilliant place to learn and teach has paid off, with our pupils leading their own teaching and increasing their aspirations. I hope that our feature is able to inspire other schools to try out new ways of working.”
The Review showcases best practice as a learning tool to the public and private sector. It is sent to over half a million leading policymakers and features articles from leading journalists, sector experts and best-practice case studies.
The school was selected due to the excellent outcomes that the children are making, which demonstrate significant improvements to the school.
Cllr Kevin Maton, Coventry City Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, said: “I’m proud of the work that the team at Frederick Bird Primary School have put in for their pupils and the well-deserved recognition that they are now receiving.
“It’s great news for our city to have schools that are so passionate about their pupils’ learning and development and to be used as an example for central government and schools across the country.”
The Parliamentary Review’s director Daniel Yossman said: “Frederick Bird Primary School and other hardworking organisations from across the country have come together to make this year’s Review possible.
“It is my belief that innovation is contagious, if only it is given the platform to spread. It is the Review’s purpose to provide this platform and I am confident we are fulfilling it.”
