Improving progress; avoiding 'coasting'

Tailored training

This course is only available on a consultancy basis where we come to you.

Course description

This course is designed to support school leaders who are striving to move their school forward by improving achievement and progress outcomes.  Schools who are seeking to improve the progress of their learners, including those who may be at risk of being judged to be coasting, will receive practical support to ensure they are equipped with all the latest strategies and good practice needed to improve.

During the course, you will develop an understanding of the most effective strategies to improve progress within your school by reviewing your assessment strategies and determining whether assessment data is being used effectively in your school to move pupils forward.  You will also look at improvement planning and develop the skills necessary to ensure your plan is credible and will lead to improvement.

Pre-course preparation

Delegates will need to bring their latest Raiseonline data (or ALPs for sixth form) to the course.
