Aims and outcomes
The programme aims to strengthen school leaders’ self-evaluation, build effective peer review practices and equip school leaders with an up-to-date, in depth understanding of inspection procedures.
This is a day review led by one of our Senior Associates for Inspection (ex-HMI), supported by a team of senior leaders from participating schools who have completed the accredited ECO course (see below). The Effectiveness Review will be structured around the Ofsted framework and on up to three areas set by the school. The resulting short-report will provide a robust, grade-free evaluation with clear recommendations for improvement.
To underpin the Effectiveness Review, schools will be provided with an in-depth, half day data review undertaken by John Lunn (Senior Associate Performance Data).
Effective classroom observation (ECO) Abridged
This is an abridged version of one of Cambridge Education’s most successful programmes and will equip participating senior leaders with exceptional classroom observation skills.
The ECO course focuses on developing consistent evaluation of teaching, learning and assessment as well as outcomes across your school. Developed by experienced inspectors, this five-unit programme includes two tutor-led days combined with distance learning and an assessed lesson observation. (For full details of ECO programme visit our web site www.dartmoortsa.org.uk).
