Detail

This example shows how improvement at Mendell Primary School was driven by establishing a culture of seeking solutions and overcoming barriers. It describes how the new culture was built without sacrificing the school’s strengths or appearing to weaken those features valued most by the wider school community, particularly by parents and carers. This is one of 12 case studies about the schools featured in the report Getting to good, published by Ofsted in September 2012.
