IIP second time around for Murray's Road Junior School 10 November 2005

    Well done to all the staff at Murray’s Road Junior School in retaining recognition as an Investor in People. The school was the first Primary school to be recognised as an Investor in People back in 2002.

    The School received a detailed follow up report from the Assessor, which was full of supportive comments.

    Sue Jolly spoke of her involvement since joining the school as Deputy Head teacher - " Murray's Road has a reputation of high expectations and high standards. Teamwork is the answer. It is important for everyone to be valued and respected in their work. There is a strong sense of loyalty and commitment here at Murray's Road and people are prepared to 'go that extra mile' to make the difference. I am thoroughly enjoying my job and I am proud to be working alongside such a strong team of hard working, dedicated professionals. Investors in people helps to give us a clear & shared sense of direction”.
    Steve Taylor (Head teacher) said - “Having Investors in People status and being able to use the laurel logo and having the plaque on the wall is great, but more important to us are the many benefits we have gained from using Investors to repeatedly revisit our culture and practices to identify our strengths and highlight our weaknesses. Pursuing the Investor in People award has sharpened our focus particularly regarding management processes and our training and development of support staff. It’s also great evidence for the Department of Education’s Framework for School Self-Review & External Validated Review”.

    Raising the achievement of pupils is dependent on the contribution, commitment and continued learning of the staff and others who work with Murray’s Road Junior School. Teaching and support staff are, therefore, the school's greatest asset and this results in a positive impact for the children.Murrays Road IIP Presentation
