|Chiswick School Gets 'Gold' Award|
Chosen for Investors in People for supporting staff
Following two days of interviews and comprehensive evidence collection, Chiswick School has been presented with a prestigious national award. The school which has improved standards and student outcomes in recent times was awarded the Investors in People Gold award for going above and beyond in the way that they develop, support and motivate their staff.
The Gold award has been awarded to just 3.2% of organisations in the UK and celebrates those that perform beyond the core Investors in People Standard.
The Standard provides a solid foundation for further growth and development and is awarded to well-run, forward thinking organisations which meet a range of set criteria, including learning and development, leadership skills and recognition and reward of staff amongst others.
John Telfer, Managing Director of Inspiring Business Performance Ltd (IBP), the organisation that delivers Investors in People for London and the South, said: “In a climate of constant change it is even more important that an organisation shows a capacity to adapt in order to initiate and sustain growth. Chiswick School is a shining example that proves organisations can achieve great things during challenging times”.
Tony Ryan headteacher stated; “We are absolutely delighted with this award. We have been an Investors in People school since 1996 and received the Bronze award three years ago. I am blessed with an absolutely amazing body of staff who work so hard forChiswick students; we simply could not have made the progress that we have over the last four years without their support, hard work and absolute dedication. This award demonstrates how much we value every member of staff and how we are willing to back them to make Chiswick School even better”.
