The programme aims to:
Full Effectiveness Review
A day and half review led by our Senior Associate for Inspection, supported by up to four trained senior leaders from participating schools. The Effectiveness Review will focus on three areas set by the school: a strength, an area that is improving and an area of weakness. In addition, the report will cover the key Ofsted areas that are assessed to judge the overall effectiveness of a school. The resulting report will provide a robust, grade-free evaluation with clear recommendations.
Light-Touch Effectiveness Review
For schools that have undertaken a Full Effectiveness Review or had an Ofsted Inspection, we offer a half day review. This is, like the Full ER, led by by our Senior Associate for Inspection, supported by up to four trained senior leaders from participating schools. The light-touch version focuses on progress since the last ER / Ofsted inspection.
Senior leaders will be trained in how to undertake rigorous Effectiveness Reviews. This one-day training will combine the rigorous standards of Ofsted Inspection with the supportive, collaborative approach of the Dartmoor TSA. Once trained, senior leaders will be able to participate in Effectiveness Reviews.
