This training is aimed at primary school and academy leaders, putting much emphasis on the leaders’ role in developing a self-evaluation statement based on the new Ofsted framework. The training will interrogate the new framework and help leaders to understand exactly how schools and academies will be judged. At the same time, it provides a really useful framework to help leaders write their self-evaluation statements. It is intended to be a practical event with leaders ending up with ‘best fit’ judgements against a series of key questions.
The training will:
Focus on each the six areas identified within the framework
It will look at the main aspects identified for each of these six areas by Ofsted in its framework, e.g., sequencing and progression under curriculum intent and taking account of current research under curriculum implementation;
It will help you make sense of how judgements are made by creating, for each of the identified aspect, key questions similar to the ones that inspectors will ask, effectively six to eight in each aspect;
It will them provide you with descriptions that have been created linked to outstanding, good, required improvement or inadequate against all the key questions raised against each aspect;
You will then be encouraged to find the ‘best fit’ for your school;
The diagram below helps to clarify the process.
"This training event provided by Focus was fantastic. It gave a really clear overview of the new Ofsted Framework and how to link a SEF to this effectively. Time was given to reflect with colleagues and get some writing done. Thanks Clive - came away with a really clear view on what needed to be done."
