Comments from our previous study days:

We welcomed eleven teachers and senior leaders from schools across Yorkshire, Northumberland, Sunderland and Newcastle to see ‘mantle’ in action at St John’s. It was a brilliant day and feedback included:

‘Staff and children were excellent – teachers and TAs very skilled, children very engaged and model pupils!’

‘School was very welcoming. Extremely worthwhile seeing mantle in every year group.’

‘Classes were bursting with outstanding practice.’

‘I was impressed by the difficulty of the subject matter covered and the levels of the children’s engagement and how articulate they were.’

‘Great trainers. Fantastic day and very motivating.’

‘It was inspiring hearing children talking so passionately and maturely about topics that would, in other schools, be avoided or hard to access.’
