Event description


Target Group: Headteachers of Outstanding Primary Schools

Tutor: Marcus Cooper

As you will be aware, schools who are judged to be outstanding by Ofsted are exempt from ‘routine inspection’. As a result of this outstanding schools can go for a considerable period of time without being inspected.   This forum is designed to provide an opportunity for outstanding schools to meet together, consider current best practice and review their self-evaluation to ensure their practice remains ‘cutting edge’ and outstanding.


The forum will be divided into two elements. The first part of the forum is designed to support schools with information on the key elements of the current ‘outstanding’ Ofsted judgement. The afternoon workshop will provide an opportunity for senior leaders to work together on their self-evaluation and to reflect upon elements covered during the morning. *Please note that lunch will be provided


Each school will be asked to bring with them one example of their work which they consider to be outstanding practice.


For your information, please find below an outline of the forum:
