NQT Appropriate Body

Harefield Primary School operates as an Appropriate Body for Newly Qualified Teachers

The appointment of an Appropriate Body is a statutory requirement for the induction period of NQTs and the Appropriate Body makes the final decision as to whether an NQT has met the Teachers’ Standards on the recommendation of the Headteacher/Principal

The main role of an appropriate body is to quality assure the NQT induction process

To fulfil this role, Harefield Primary School will:

  • Provide, collate and submit to the NCTL all statutory assessment documentation
  • Provide a named contact and Moderation visits
  • Keep schools up to date and informed of changes to legislation
  • Provide support and guidance to schools

"Every child within our community of schools deserves the

highest quality provision"
