ASP for Governors

ASP Training and Consultancy are leading National Governor ASP Training providers supporting Governing Bodies to understand and interpret ASP (formerly RAISEonline) Reports to drive School Improvement and fulfil Governor Responsibilities since 2006.

Our excellent ASP Governor training session is your opportunity to gain outstanding guidance and advice to support your Governing Body to interpret and fully understand your ASP Report and demonstrate Good/Outstanding Governance

We can support your Governing Body to:

• Drive school improvement by challenging your school and being a critical friend in a supportive way to raise standards
• Help you to make accurate judgements relating to ASP data to raise attainment and progress levels
• Understand your strengths, weaknesses, areas for development and trends across subjects, key stages and pupil groups across attainment and progress

The New OFSTED Framework places increasing emphasis on Leadership and Management and Effective Governance
“Most commonly, the governing body knew too little about the school because monitoring was not rigorous or because over-generous self-review judgements were accepted without sufficient challenge: at times of change and in an inherently challenging sector, they accepted too much on trust’’

Are you confident you are a high performing Governing Body with rigorous data management self – evaluation procedures in place?

Can you demonstrate ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ Governance?

You will be aware that many of the ASP Reports are now highlighted for Governors attention. We are aware that Governors may not have a statistical background, and lack the essential data interpretation skills and understanding required to support school improvement and fulfil the Governance expectations required by OFSTED to achieve ‘outstanding’ governance.

The Governing Body must be seen to be making an IMPACT. We can help you fulfil this responsibility.

Ofsted

This year, we have seen the New OFSTED Framework placing increasing emphasis on Leadership and Management and Effective Governance
• schools will only be deemed to be providing an acceptable standard of education where they are judged to be ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’
• a single judgement of ‘requires improvement’ will replace the current ‘satisfactory’ judgement and ‘notice to improve’ category

The Governing body must be seen to be making an impact

Many Governing Bodies are not reaching Good/Outstanding judgements and being judged as Requiring Improvement for reasons such as:

“Most commonly, the governing body knew too little about the school because monitoring was not rigorous or because over-generous self-review judgements were accepted without sufficient challenge: at times of change and in an inherently challenging sector, they accepted too much on trust.”
