Schools are no longer judged on provision but rather on outcomes. School inspection frameworks have moved away from a series of lesson observations where the teacher was expected to “perform” for the Inspector, whilst they completed a check list of such things as “uses interactive whiteboard” and “AfL”; they now focus much more closely on the pupils. Pupil voice should be ignored at a teacher’s peril!
This course will help your staff acclimatise to the new order: it’s not about you any more, it’s about them: it’s about outcomes for pupils, not teacher performance.
Aims of the course:
This course does not outline the ISI Inspection format and process, rather it will help class practitioners and School leaders understand what inspectors are looking for now and translate the inspection criteria into classroom and school practice.
- Evaluation – where are we now and where do we want to be?
This session will provide an insight into developing a vision for your school or department. We will consider how to use data effectively, how to engage staff in the observation process and examine how best to self-evaluate.
- Improving Pupils’ academic and other achievements
We will look at high impact strategies for raising achievement, how to show progression, providing the evidence to demonstrate successful outcomes and more.
- Improving Pupils’ personal development
In this session we will share ideas on effective marking and feedback systems, look at strategies for improving and enabling personal development and consider classroom approaches to developing pupil’s self-discipline and resilience.
- Reflections and planning for the future
You will have an opportunity to develop your own action plan for your school and department ready to hit the ground running the very next day after the training.
