www.kis-education-solutions.com Areas for Quality of Leadership and Management? Key leaders and managers, including those responsible for governance, consistently communicate high expectations and ambition. Self-evaluation is robust and the school’s actions have been carefully planned, are concerted and effective. Governors, or those in a similar position, systematically challenge senior leaders. As a result, the quality of teaching and pupils’ achievement have improved, or previous good performance in these areas have been consolidated. The well thought out policies ensure that pupils make at least good progress in literacy. Teaching is good and/or improving strongly as a result of accurate monitoring, effective performance management and professional development, which are closely matched to the needs of the school and staff.
An approach for challenge and monitoring 1] Identify a question 2] Identify what evidence would be needed to answer the question 3] Design a monitoring activity or request information 4] Collect evidence 5] Evaluate evidence 6] Answer the question 7] Indentify next step: Update Self Evaluation Confirm Judgements Evaluate Impact of the school’s work Identify further questions

www.kis-education-solutions.com Quality of Teaching Teaching in most subjects, including English and mathematics, is usually good, with examples of some outstanding teaching. As a result, most pupils......... make good progress and achieve well over time. Teachers have high expectations. They plan and teach lessons that deepen pupils’ knowledge and understanding and enable them to develop a range of skills across the curriculum. Teachers listen to, carefully observe and skilfully question pupils during lessons in order to reshape tasks and explanations to improve learning.
www.kis-education-solutions.com Quality of Teaching Teachers assess pupils’ learning and progress regularly and accurately. They ensure that pupils know how well they have done and what they need to do to improve. Reading, writing, communication and mathematics are taught effectively. Teachers and other adults create a positive climate for learning in their lessons and pupils are interested and engaged. Effective teaching strategies, including setting appropriate homework and appropriately targeted support and intervention are matched well to most pupils’ individual needs, including those most and least able, so that pupils learn well in lessons.
