An Interview with Bev Forrest

As the HA Quality Marks’ second full year draws to a close and we begin to see a number of school joining the QM community, we decided to have a chat with primary QM assessor Bev Forrest  for some of her thoughts on the QM programme.  Some schools tell us that they find the prospect of an assessment visit daunting, and akin to an Ofsted inspection. We wanted to help break down that anxiety for schools and introduce you to the friendly face of our assessors. While assessors carry out a rigorous assessment of participating schools, they are looking to help you shout about the great provision you provide and to help you celebrate your achievements as well as benefitting the school with their expertise. They are as one school put it like “Ofsted with a smile!” Take a look at our interview with Bev to be introduced to the approachable expertise that pervades our QM assessment team. We’ll be adding further assessor interviews over the coming months and we hope you’ll enjoy getting to know our QM assessors.
