Brockhampton Primary SchoolOnly My Best


Governing Body / IAB

Following our Ofsted inspection in January 2016, an Interim Academy Board (IAB), comprising of experienced school improvement experts and parent governors, has been set up by the Department for Education to take on the delegated roles and responsibilities of the Governing Body in their entirety.


They will continue to implement those actions required to ensure Brockhampton undergoes rapid and sustained improvement.

Helen Davies - Headteacher at Lickhill Primary School


I am the headteacher of Lickhill Primary School in Worcestershire. I was asked by the local authority to take over the school after it had been placed in special measures. Three and a half years later the school was judged to be outstanding. The special measures journey was challenging but, it ensured every aspect of school provision was thoroughly evaluated and improved.


I deliver leadership training on behalf of Edge Hill University and I work for OFSTED as pupil premium receiver, as well as being a member of the OFSTED complaint panel. I am also part of the Headteachers Reference Group which is a consultation panel for OFSTED when they are considering making changes to the inspection process.
