  • Trans Team putting things together
  • Shenfied High School - downgraded - “Good with Outstanding Features”
    Now “Satisfactory” - John Fairhurst (head) claims they used one year group’s figures rather than 3 year trends
  • New emphasis on pupil safety - claims that they have been marked down for risks like “low door handles”
  • While the framework has identified 8 priorities, it seems to be concentrating on... results
  • “raising the bar” implies improving quality - within a narrow focus that seems to be ignoring the context schools face
  • Keith Dennis: real issue is the greater emphasis on raw exam results or “attainment” - school problems like recruiting Maths & English teachers - regardless of the challenging intake of a school
  • Experience of inspected schools is different; Janet Reid, Yeo Valley Primary - gone from “Good” 3 years ago to “Inadequate”

  • Areas need developing These are in no order...
  • So many strengths... so much happening... so much OFSTED isn’t interested in.
  • Deborah Andrew. Evidence & research showing that monitoring doesn’t lead to improvement. You need to know the data/facts/what’s going on... but it also needs curriculum change
  • Concerns by employers (this stretches back to 60s)
    Every time results issued, CBI issues response - inevitably drawing attention to mis-match of qualifications & employment skills. Maths & Science. Mike Perry.
  • Raised this with middle leaders: economically-driven, demand led


  • Changes to curriculum:
    Core Skills, Social Skills, Learning Skills, Self-Management, Creativity

  • How does this all link to better skills?
    Competencies-based approach; understanding & doing; ICT rich (3 C’s); flexible; non-receptive
