SSAT accreditation 


Preston Manor School is proud of its SSAT accreditation.  Our work with SSAT provides support to teachers to inquire, using action research and reflection as the starting point for all they do. To inspire teachers, the SSAT fosters collaboration, knowledge sharing and recognition via various networks. They encourage us to innovate, drawing on the latest thinking and practice from teachers and academics. Above all, the SSAT equips us to measure impact: gathering the hard evidence that drives improvement and builds the authority of the profession. SSAT – inquire, inspire, innovate, impact.

Through this we support the new Computing Programme of Study for the National Curriculum in a way that leaves pupils and teachers feeling inspired and engaged.
