We are excited to launch a new, innovative programme to primary members: the Outstanding Primary Teacher Programme. Please find attached the programme flyer, which includes a booking link.
It is distinctive and significant for a number of reasons:
Contact Martin Smith – TSSW Lead – to discuss programme in more detail (email@example.com)
The programme aims to:
* Provide schools with a robust, developmental Effectiveness Review
* Strengthen schools’ self-evaluation techniques
* Equip school leaders with an up-to-date, in depth understanding of inspection today.
Full Effectiveness Review
A day and half review led by our Senior Associate for Inspection, supported by up to four trained senior leaders from participating schools. The Effectiveness Review will focus on three areas set by the school: a strength, an area that is improving and an area of weakness. In addition, the report will cover the key Ofsted areas that are assessed to judge the overall effectiveness of a school. The resulting report will provide a robust, grade-free evaluation with clear recommendations.
Light-Touch Effectiveness Review
For schools that have undertaken a Full Effectiveness Review or had an Ofsted Inspection, we offer a half day review. This is, like the Full ER, led by our Senior Associate for Inspection, supported by up to four trained senior leaders from participating schools. The light-touch version focuses on progress since the last ER / Ofsted inspection.
Senior leaders will be trained in how to undertake rigorous Effectiveness Reviews. This one-day training will combine the rigorous standards of Ofsted Inspection with the supportive, collaborative approach of Teaching Schools South West. Once trained, senior leaders will be able to participate in Effectiveness Reviews.
Programme Delivery Lead
Senior Associate for Inspection. Neil is a former Primary Head and has undertaken school improvement services across schools in the SW.
Feedback from heads
“the universal opinion of the staff involved was that [it] was much more rigorous than [other] models, [and] was much more useful in the school's improvement journey and represented much greater value for money.”
“The depth and accuracy of the report along with the feedback meeting to governors gave them a great deal of information to reflect upon.”
“Real support and challenge achieved - the review team consists of real people doing the day to day job and appreciate the pressures that involves.”
