Investors in People

Congleton High School first gained the ‘Investors in People Standard’ in October 2007.

The school had a further review in March 2012 and we are extremely proud that we have continued to meet the requirements of the Standard.  In fact, the reviewer stated that it was “difficult to emphasize enough how strong a review this was” and that in his experience he would “place Congleton High School at the front of its peers with regard to its approach to Leadership and Management and the impact this has on its people and school performance.”

The reviewer identified various areas of strength and good practice, highlighting “the strong sense of togetherness that emerges when talking to its people”, the “positive and supportive culture set out by the Head Teacher and led by example through the leadership team and middle managers” and the fact that “the school has a clear vision and pursues this consistently and in full consultation with people across the school.”

  • “The performance management of teachers is rigorous and this is reflected in pay progression. This is linked to an extensive programme of professional development which the majority of teachers have taken good advantage of to improve aspects of their practice.” Ofsted Dec 2014
