School Review Course

What you will learn

This brand new ‘Reviewing your school’ Course has been specifically designed to support you in carrying out your own school review and self-evaluation.

What you will learn

  • Participants will develop their performance evaluating skills which they will be able to use in the context of their own school and their school self-evaluation will benefit from applying these simple strategies.
  • Schools will be able to undertake their own strategic analysis of the review outcomes – identifying the next steps for their system improvement work.
  • Although not designed to replicate an Ofsted inspection, the programme will allow schools to assess the robustness of their self-assessment and improvement planning practice in advance of an inspection.

Why is school self-review so important?

OFSTED expect schools to have robust self-evaluation in place. Effective self-reviews are an important component in this process and can save the cost of expensive external reviews.

OFSTED will look for patterns and evidence around the following areas:

  • Do leaders promote high expectations and use rigorous systems to drive improvement and achievement of learners and groups of learners?
    • Are study programmes planned to fully meet the principles of the DFE’s 16 to 19 expectations?
    • Do teaching and assessment support and challenge learners?
    • Do study programmes build on prior attainment to allow students to make progress?
    • Do learners receive high-quality impartial careers guidance that prepares them for their chosen next steps?
    • Are learners developing personal, social, employability and independent learning skills?
    • What is the impact of non-qualification / enrichment activities?
    • Are learners making progress from their different starting points?
    • Are the 16 to 19 minimum standards met where applicable?
    • Are the arrangements for safeguarding learners effective?

ASP training and consultancy sessions can be personalised to support the professional development needs of your school team and offer consultancy support to school development.

Analyse School Performance Training and Consultancy will support your school in your own review of the following key areas that Ofsted will focus on:

  • How the school’s progress figures compare with national figures
    • What is the impact of the schools’ actions to enable all pupils to reach their potential?
    • What are the trends over time, and what are the reasons behind them?
    • Does progress differ across different types of qualification – Academic / Applied General / Technical Certificates / Level 2?
    • What are the progress figures and trends for subjects, including English and Mathematics re-sits?
    • What are the trends in the progress of groups of pupils, particularly by gender, prior attainment at KS4 and disadvantaged?
    •What is the impact of the schools actions to enable all pupils to reach their potential? What is at the root of trends over time?
    • What are the patterns of performance for different types of pupils?

Cluster of Schools

Many schools request a whole day training, combining ASP Interactive training in the morning with FFT training or one of our other Training Courses in the afternoon.

Combining ASP Training with the NEW ASP Governor Training Course is also an excellent combination supporting schools Nationally to ensure school Governing Bodies understand their school ASP Summary Report, fulfil their Leadership and Management responsibilities and support School Evaluation and Improvement.

Alternatively, contact us by telephone/email to speak to one of our Senior School Improvement Consultants to discuss your school’s needs and options and request a Personalised School Improvement Training package.
