Improving your Ofsted rating: how to cross a grade boundary

Course description

Is your school aiming to cross a grade boundary ('requires improvement' to 'good' or 'good' to 'outstanding')?  This essential course will guide you through the most recent inspection framework to help you audit and identify areas for improvement.  In addition, it will consider recognised good and outstanding practice and how this might relate to your school, audit/evaluate your current effectiveness and identify and prioritise actions for school improvement.  The course is also suitable for those aiming to sustain a previous 'good' or 'outstanding' Ofsted judgement.

Pre-course preparation

Delegates will need to bring with them a copy of the school inspection handbook (Aug 2015) either electronically or in hard copy.
