Will your school achieve or maintain Outstanding in Quality of Education ?

The single biggest contributory factor to a pupil’s attainment and progress is the quality of teaching; this is even more marked for disadvantaged and vulnerable students (double the effect size) so the continued improvement of the implementation of teaching and learning in schools must be our number one priority.

What does outstanding implementation look like?

‘ Ofsted’s focus moves away from headline data to look instead at how schools are achieving these results, and whether they are offering a curriculum that is broad, rich and deep, or simply teaching to the test’

  • So, what does this translate to in practice?
  • How do make progress explicit for inspectors?
  • With so much information available to teachers what interventions really work?
  • What does outstanding teaching look like?
  • What do inspectors look for as evidence of outstanding learning?

Clear strategies and interventions

This course is highly practical and interactive. Teachers will leave with a clear set of strategies and interventions to improve their curriculum implementation which they can adopt in their next lesson.

“Vision without implementation is hallucination.”

Thomas Edison
