Perseid School

Leading Edge Framework for Exceptional Education

Perseid School is an active member of the SSAT network, the largest and most active network of schools in the country, helping teachers to empower pupils to succeed, and part of its Leading-Edge Partnership Programme.

The SSAT’s Framework for Exceptional Education is a school improvement and planning tool, built on the philosophy that school improvement is an ongoing process focused on self-evaluation and a celebration of strengths. The Framework helps schools to implement strategic, principled decision-making and supports ongoing school development and improvement.

We are delighted to share that we recently attained accreditation at the highest level in relation to our Professional Learning and in Wellbeing in September 2023. This means that Perseid School has met the highest standards of the Framework for Exceptional Education, and that our work in this field is amongst the most effective practice, nationally.

As a school, we chose to focus on these areas within the Framework as it impacts all that we do. It addresses the ‘why’ in our role and mission, and our shared moral purpose guides all that we do at Perseid.

What does this mean?

Professional Learning

  • Collaborative practice
  • Professional learning
  • Staff progression routes. 


  • Creating a positive, happy school environment
  • Championing diversity and inclusion
  • Creative, innovative and consistent support. 

In order to have achieved these accolades, Perseid School underwent a peer review followed by an in-depth review from one of the central SSAT leader team. The wider team, including lead practitioners and subject or aspect leads contributed to this.
