Our supported peer review model has been very well-received by the schools in which it has been piloted. This model is particularly effective for MATs, federations, alliances or for schools who wish to work together to build leadership capacity across more than one school.
One of our Leadership and Management Advisers will provide expertise to plan, report on and quality assure the process.
A planning meeting will take place before the review to identify focus questions, or key lines of enquiry, from the school’s data and self-evaluation activities.
The Leadership and Management Adviser, the visiting Headteacher (identified by the school) and the school’s own leaders will plan a variety of activities for the day of the review. This will enable them to evaluate each identified aspect of the school’s work, identify those aspects which are strengths and agree clear steps to bring about improvement. Learning walks, evaluation of data, work scrutiny and other activities will be used to assess the quality of teaching, learning and assessment against current Ofsted criteria.
