Transcript of SECURING GOOD PROGRESS

How I will drive and secure the Improvement Agenda for Emerson Park School
DATA
Teachers were identifying student levels that were based upon guesswork.
We were unable to track or predict accurate student outcomes and as a school under threat of closure - this situation was untenable!

I led inset on data then asked for photocopies of all tests used for assessment in order to validate teacher data.

FOCUS ON AFL

* highly focused lesson design with sharp and differentiated objectives
* high demands of pupil involvement and engagement with their learning (active learning)
* appropriate use of teacher questioning, modelling and explaining
* an emphasis on learning through dialogue, with regular opportunities for pupils to talk both individually and in groups
* an expectation that pupils will accept responsibility for their own learning and work independently
* regular use of encouragement and authentic praise to engage and motivate pupils.

FOCUS ON AFL
Review the Curriculum Offer
THE SUREST PATH TO POSITIVE SELF ESTEEM IS TO SUCCEED AT SOMETHING WHICH ONE PERCEIVED WOULD BE DIFFICULT. EACH TIME WE STEAL A STUDENT’S STRUGGLE, WE STEAL THE OPPORTUNITY FOR THEM TO BUILD SELF-CONFIDENCE. THEY MUST LEARN TO DO HARD THINGS TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES.Sylvia Rimm

How will STEP UP improve Teaching and Learning?

All staff will receive training on how to observe, plan and deliver good lessons.

Individual, confidential mentoring and support will be available throughout.

Good practice identified will be shared through observations and discussion forums

The observation group meetings in which feedback is justified and discussed deepens thinking skills on what constitutes good learning.

It will encourage staff to access cross- curriculum areas and therefore allow insight into alternative teaching styles.

It allows constructive developmental feedback, offering the opportunity and support to put suggestions into practice.

It encourages a non-threatening environment in which a risk- taking and explorative culture can develop.

So… Let’s STEP UP!
