3George Spencer Foundation school and Technology College. 11 – 18 Mixed comprehensive on role.6 miles west of Nottingham City Centre.Technology College Status from 1994.Ict mark 2010OFSTED April 2010 – “Outstanding”( new framework)96% of students achieving 5+ A*-C (74% including English & Maths) “Best in Nottinghamshire.”Accredited School provider 2010SSAT Most Improved Schools Award (2007,2008, 2009.)SSAT 5A*C EM ( 2007,2008,2009)SSAT value Added Award (2008,2009)Advanced Consultant School 2009Leading Edge status for curriculum and workforce innovation.I.I.P. 2008, 2005,2002,1999.SSAT mentor school for raising achievement.Non contextualised CVA of 1024 percentile ranking of 11
4WHAT DOES OFSTED SAY OUTSTANDING LOOKS LIKE ? Inspection Framework 2009 –How Effective are Teaching and Learning?
5OUTSTANDING TEACHINGTeaching is at least good and much is outstanding, with the result that the students are making exceptional progressTeaching is highly effective in inspiring students and ensuring that they learn extremely wellExcellent subject knowledge is applied consistently to challenge and inspire studentsResources, including new technology, make a marked contribution to the quality of learning, as does the precisely targeted support provided by other adultsOFsted Observation Guidance Sheet
6OUTSTANDING BEHAVIOUR (Attitude to learning) Behaviour for all groups is exemplaryStudents’ behaviour creates an extremely positive school ethosStudents’ behaviour contributes to their successful learningStudents are highly considerate and very supportive of each other in lessonsStudents encourage others to conduct themselves wellThere is no evidence of disruptive behaviourOFsted Observation Guidance Sheet
7OUTSTANDING LEARNING & PROGRESS. The students acquire knowledge, develop understanding and learn and practise skills exceptionally well.Students demonstrate excellent concentration and are rarely off task, even in extended periods without direction from an adult.Students consistently work at or near their capacity and make and sustain comprehensive gains in their learningProgress is at least good and is exemplary for some students in relation to their target grades/levelsOFsted Observation Guidance Sheet
8OUTSTANDING USE OF ASSESSMENT Teachers and other adults are very aware of their students’ capabilities and of their prior learning/ understanding, and plan very effectively to build on theseMarking and dialogue between teachers, other adults and students are consistently of a very high qualityStudents understand in detail how to improve their work and are consistently supported in doing soTeachers systematically and effectively check students’ understanding throughout lessons, anticipating where they may need to intervene and doing so with striking impact on the quality of learningOFsted Observation Guidance Sheet

10An Insight into an Outstanding Faculty 4/13/2017Staff feel ownership of resourcesWork Smarter , not harderstrong, ethos balanced experienced staff.Regularly support each otherExtra curricular activities Space Centre, Becky Boyle, Science club, Florida, CERNRegular meetings and dialogueRegularly share good practice, faculty meetings, PM work in small teams, share planningStrong Team EthosEncourage new ideas and sharing resourcesExperienced , Well qualified – LftM.,LPDelegate responsibilityLesson observationsFaculty Scrutiny (Mini Ofsted).Science FacultyDedicated TLR point holders. Internal promotion,Clear leadershipRigorous PM processQuality assuranceWeekly Science management meetingsClear organisationExemplary Lesson plans using common agreed formatAccountability, praise, valued,Common approach. Accelerated learning CycleClear and simple systems eg behaviour managementLearning outcomes displayed every lessonLearning walksBusiness like approach to meetings,Electronic lesson plans on lineDatasharedQuality CPD in house and external 50% staff coach trainedAll staff continually add resources to SoLRecall, Describe, ExplainReminder cards on the board eg keywords for levels/ grades ALC.K.
