We may be part of a successful school – offering a good all round education, with satisfied parents, waiting lists at each entry point and an excellent ISI report. Avoiding complacency and seeking continuous improvement is vital if that success is to continue. At the macro level this course will help schools develop their own self-evaluation measures as well as making the most effective use of both internal and externally derived data. At the micro level we will examine how teachers and tutors can make us of self-evaluation measures and information to better support pupil development and learning.
Session A – What is it that you want to know? Before purchasing expensive packages or spending valuable time developing internal valuation tools we must be absolutely clear what it is we want to know
Session B – How do we get the data, information or most importantly the knowledge that we need? A review of what is available externally or may be developed internally. Understanding that it is more than looking at averages, percentages or standard deviations
Session C – How do we make use of the information, knowledge and data that we have available to us to help us improve as a school? How do we drag it out of the spreadsheets and the Deputy Head’s charts so that it drives school improvement?
Session D – How do we persuade school staff that self evaluation and its output is more than just a management inspection exercise or a mass of figures on a spreadsheet? Persuading staff of the value of data and information derived from our self evaluation tools, and how it can improve individual pupil teacher interactions.
The course will be highly interactive and experiential in nature. The course does not require or assume expertise in statistics or the use of spreadsheets.
