Senior Leadership Development: Leading Whole School Monitoring and Evaluati...
Thu 25 May 2017, 09:30 – 15:30 BST
Effective and realistic self-evaluation is the key to school improvement. It helps school leaders to identify its strengths and weaknesses and provides essential detail for school improvement and their capacity to raise school standards.
This course will explore strategies and approaches to monitoring and evaluating learning and teaching, enabling school leaders to undertake a probing analysis of school progress and performance, ensuring all pupils reach their full potential.
The monitoring strategies and approaches include: using agreed success criteria, rigorous target setting, reviewing planning, using a range of audits, collecting, sharing and moderating samples of pupils’ work, classroom observations and providing feedback to each other and to diagnose strengths, weaknesses and priorities for improvement.
We will identify key information and data to include in the self-evaluation process. Participants will be provided with support on how to analyse school data, make accurate judgments from a range of evidence to identify strengths and weaknesses in performance, check the accuracy of assessment data and judgments about progress through rigorous work sampling, lesson observations and sharing of good practice.
We will identify how to ensure consistency across school/key stage/department and consider ways to challenge all pupils with realistic and appropriate targets and actions.
This course is suitable for Primary and Post Primary senior leaders and principals.
