(The ATLP was appointed as School Improvement Partner to John Willmott School, in 2016.)
On Friday 27 January, Lisa Lockley, assistant head at John Willmott School, presented at the PiXL English Conference at Westminster Central Hall. An impressive 1600 English teachers from all over the country attended to develop their understanding of the new specifications, progress measures and resources.
Lisa delivered a presentation on PiXL resources and strategies across Key Stages 3 and 4. These resources included Exam Board specific trackers; Pre-Public Exam papers; Intervention Manager; Approaches to Transition; Schemes of Work and PiXL Curve resources. As well as this, Lisa along with key note speaker and head of PiXL English, Rachel Johnson, spoke about the PiXL Classroom App, which Lisa contributed to the resourcing of over the summer.
Delegates felt confident that the seminar had given them greater insight into how to develop focused interventions and how to use PiXL’s Huddle resources to review their long terms plans from Years 7 to 11.
John Willmott’s School’s English department is proud of the successes it has achieved both with exam results and progress measures and some of this success can certainly be attributed to its use of PiXL approaches to support the quality teaching and learning which is evident in all that they do.
