Baverstock Closure Team

The team were commended for their leadership skills when they stepped in to look after the pupils of Baverstock Academy after it closed at short notice leaving hundreds of pupils without a school place.  They found each of the students a new school and successfully negotiated with a college to admit all of the years 9 & 10 together so that the pupils could finish their GCSE courses. 


Lisa Gunstone

Lisa often goes above and beyond her role as a Family Group Conference Manager, and helped design and implement a new quality assurance system for Children’s Services.  This has significantly helped to raise standards of practice and has been praised by Ofsted.  Lisa has had a real impact in improving outcomes for disadvantaged and vulnerable Birmingham children, and their families.
