Preparing for ofsted! nec 2012

  1. 1. Preparing for Ofsted! Lee Pace – Deputy Head Teacher Havergal (CofE) Primary School Wolverhampton (Expecting Ofsted Soon!)
  2. 2. The new framework  The Achievement of Pupils  The Quality of Teaching  Behaviour and Safety  Leadership and ManagementSOCIAL- MORAL- SPIRITUAL - CULTURAL SMSC!
  3. 3. Demonstrating SMSCExcellent relationships between the pupils and staff – How do your staffadd to the SMSC aspects of the school?Policies, especially Teaching and Learning and BehaviourAssemblies that require an element of reflection; a time for the pupils tothink.Provide evidence of where SMSC is taught/experienced across thecurriculum – simple ‘mapping’ of it might help!Learning to Learn – preparing children for life.Learning environment; worship area, learning to learn display,evidence of collaboration, partnerships and pupil voice.School councils – Are these systematically run?Older Pupils contribution to the school. SO WHAT?
  4. 4. The Achievement of Pupils.How are staff made accountable for the performance of the children in their class?•Performance management, Class data analysis, Evidence of how staff are beingchallenged, Planning Files, IEPs. RIGOUROUS AND REGULAR!How do staff ensure all children are challenged? (Children should get ‘Stuck’)•Higher order questioning (Seem to be spotting this a lot)How is progress discussed during the lesson?•Pupil discussions, plenaries that include questions about progress – probing children’sreasons for their thoughts. How does learning relate to children’s targets?Have the context clear! Your know the kids – not Ofsted!•Particularly useful for cohorts/groups of pupils who underperform!
  5. 5. Teaching and Learning The classroom environment - cross curricular links? Paired discussion Collaborative learning – Seems to be a huge focus (SMSC) Still loving the ‘Wow’ lessons! (A little left field?) AfL – The use of clear success criteria and evaluating against it. Children to decide next steps Include an element of SMSC Know your best teachers – know what makes them so outstanding. And of course the opposite! Phonics – lots of monitoring for a systematic approach. TAs also being observed! Guided reading. Again a systematic approach shared by all the staff! Cross curricular maths IWB – use it appropriately Marking: MUST offer next steps
  6. 6. Behaviour and safety Safeguarding – effective procedures in place seems to be enough. Manners – ALWAYS spotting this! Movement in the corridor – calm and orderly! Playtime is ‘harmonious’ – how is this ensured? Children are being asked about the ‘types of bullying’ Gathering lots of evidence from pupils and parents Attendance – What is being done to improve it? What has been the impact?
  7. 7. Leadership and ManagementThe wider leadership of the school.For example - Literacy co-ordinator should be:Monitoring lessons, books, phonics, guided reading, leading moderationof writing, have a clear action plan and have clear evidence of the impacthe/she has made.Looking for examples of how all staff take a leadership role in:•The subject•Curriculum planning and mapping•Monitoring and evaluationHow is outstanding practise shared/modelled across the school?The GovernorsValue for money seems key –do the governors know the impact of theirspending?Ability to challenge the leadership of the school
  8. 8. Self evaluation. Be evaluative – so what? THE IMPACT!… so that…/…ensuring that…/…the impact has been…/…developing the children’s… SMSC to have a separate paragraph(s) in all four sections Context –What is the story behind attainment and what impact does this have? Make sure it’s up to date!
  9. 9. Dont TTT Teach to the Test or IIIInnovate In the Inspection - SMILESimply Make It Like Everyday John Pearce @JohnPearce_JP
