JCS online database Tess has requested that online research facility be looked at and feedback after 30 day trial. This amounts to a general request for the day to flag it to subject teams. Teams should feedback by the end of the trial period. Late School Materials Teams may wish to consider the materials requested for Late School. Reminders Sixth form lesson observation by October half term
PM and planning pack time Staff have requested some time to amend their planning packs in response to the first wave of PM observation during the summer term. SMSC and Literacy and communication pose some of the most obvious areas at the moment. This will have be supported by a initial CPD twilight in June 2012. SMSC will be supported by some additional guidance. PM update Issues arising At this early stage of establishing the new framework, initial outcomes indicate the following as areas for development: Greater focus on assessment which is evident in the work scrutiny. At present this appears to be the larger issue as weaker work sampling, and assessment and monitoring, means that progress over time cannot be clearly gauged in observations. A triangulation of evidence must take place between learning and progress in the lesson, what the data (monitoring, and tracking) reveals, AND the progress evidenced in students’ work. The latter demands that clear assessment, and feedback, are taking place so that the student is able to engage in discussion about their progress with clarity and confidence. At present, this is not always the case. A need for the clear identification and development of SMSC in lessons. Staff need further guidance. The importance of student led learning which promotes more independent, and deeper, exploration of ideas and understanding. Less than good lessons tend to contain rather too much teacher led learning which is characterised by closed Q&A. This inevitably limits the type of response that students can give.
