All school leaders will say they have high expectations within their school and for their pupils. But do all staff and governors share the same understanding of what this actually means across all aspects of the setting? And could they articulate this to an Ofsted inspector?
This book enables a school leadership team to work through various aspects of their school's outcomes and come to a clear definition of what 'high expectations' actually means in real terms. This includes academic progress through the Key Stages, the development of pupils' attitudes and behaviour and the general expectations within the unique ethos of the school.
As well as providing clarity for school leadership, the resulting information can be used to ensure consistency by all staff.
It can also be used to inform prospective parents, new staff and of course, Ofsted inspectors.
