Have you had an independent external evaluation of your school performance and standards?
Are you preparing for an Ofsted inspection or Local Authority Review?
Are you subject to Ofsted’s S8 monitoring processes?
Can you evidence the impact of the leadership and management of your school?
Do you want to learn from best practices in leading outstanding schools?
Working with your leaders and governors we can offer your school a school performance and standards review, which will provide you with an evaluation of your school’s performance and standards in comparison to outcomes achieved by all pupils in your school over the past three years.

A two day ‘coached’ review of learning and teaching in classrooms, accompanied by leaders, to jointly evaluate quality and support for pupils and groups of pupils, focussing specifically on progress, learning behaviours and teaching methods
A panel of children to seek their ‘voice’ about their achievements at school and to evaluate how well they are supported throughout their learning
Coached ‘interviews’ with leaders, managers and governors to evaluate the impact of their leadership and governance.
An evaluation report of the effectiveness of your school performance and standards when compared to the requirements of the Ofsted framework

Who will you work with?
Reviews are undertaken by our School Leadership Partners, who are highly skilled, experienced senior education leadership professionals, and are also practising school inspectors.
“The performance and standards review was for our leadership team the most outstanding piece of professional development they have ever taken part in. Using a coached model the inspection team carried out a thorough and extensive self-review of teaching and learning, progress, standards and achievements. From this they produced a comprehensive report outlining our strengths and areas for improvement. Whilst doing this the team developed the capacity of leaders to carry out rigorous self-review using Ofsted framework that moved our school forward rapidly.” Anita Cliff, Headteacher, Manor Primary School.
