Our School Improvement Programme helps drive improved teaching and learning by ensuring you’re getting the most out of your biggest asset - your data. Our specialist consultants will work with you to develop a programme that is tailor-made for your school. They have all worked as senior leaders and have a proven track record of helping schools provide evidence of improvement to parents, governors and Ofsted. The packages below show examples of some of the areas our consultants can help you with.
To develop the effective use of data by leaders and managers to support school improvement and maintain an ‘always prepared’ for inspection policy. Following the consultancy, a SIMS Strategic Development report and action plan is produced to identify the current use of data and where maximum benefit could be further gained from using SIMS to provide evidence in each of the four Ofsted judgements. The day would also identify future training needs.
Primary Assessment - Assessment without levels
To review and develop the school’s current assessment practices and support the implementation of a new method for assessing without levels. The package includes:
Customised Reporting Service
School improvement is most successful when there is a balance of internal self-evaluation and external review. Our consultants take an objective view and evaluate both quantitative and qualitative performance measures.
The day provides an opportunity for a thorough review of the school’s approach to self-evaluation, monitoring and performance management using SIMS to provide evidence. There is also a focus on how different areas of SIMS can be used to identify the impact of intervention strategies as well as the school’s strengths and priorities for development.
