'An excellent process. Challenging but very supportive. Lots of new ideas, even when we are doing very well, we could do better. Areas to improve made clear. Professional dialogue and deep questioning. Thorough understanding of my two tiny schools and our unique processes gained over the day. A good experience.'
- Executive Headteacher, First School
'All expectations were met and exceeded significantly.
- Assistant Headteacher and PDG
"As with any "audit" type process there is anxiety and trepidation. Can I go on line as saying any concerns I had were diminished immediately by the warm, disarming nature of [Backdrop]. I found the whole experience enlightening and informative and certainly backed my mantra of "everyday is a school day". Many thanks"
- Assistant Headteacher, Secondary
'[Backdrop] has provided me with valuable guidance in how to raise attainment of PP children in our school. [Their] advice has been incredibly important in shaping our PP policies and plans, giving us a solid base on which to build on.' (Pupil Premium Review)
- Primary Assistant Headteacher and PP lead
'Easy to talk to but equally we feel challenged which is a good thing! The strategic plan has given us a clear structure'
