SSAT LP Learning Centre

In 2016-17 we engaged in the SSAT (Specialist Schools and Academies Trust) Lead Practitioner Accreditation programme.

The Lead Practitioner programme is made up of a framework of professional standards and a

process of accreditation that has been designed by the profession, for the profession. It recognises

the skills, experience and qualities of school staff at every level, serving to embed and extend

teaching and learning that impacts positively on learners.


The programme involved 10 members of staff across a range of departments across the school leading educational action research projects in the school and further afield.

We were very pleased to have the following members of staff accredited by the SSAT as Lead Practitioners. They have all recognised for the excellent Teaching and Learning projects they carried out and led throughout 2016-17.

Ms V Clarke- Head of Drama

Mr S Collins- Head of PE

Mr S Christodoulou- Head of Year/ Teacher of PE

Ms R Hill- Head of House/ Year 11 Mentor

Ms L Mannings- Head of House/ Teacher of Maths

In 2017-18 Bonus Pastor became a Lead Practitioner Learning Centre and this year we are hosting and running Lead Practitioner training with schools across Lewisham and South East London where research is being carried out across a variety of schools and phases.

As a hub for the SSAT Lead Practitioner Accreditation we will continue to have a positive impact on Teaching and Learning through action research at Bonus Pastor and beyond.
