Supporting robust and accurate self-evaluation, leading to effective school development planning
The sessions will be jointly delivered by Professional Learning Schools/Learning Network Schools and Principal Challenge Advisers. Over the course of one half-day workshop and one or more twilight sessions (depending on self-selection), delegates will be provided with the opportunity to review the effectiveness of their own and exemplar Monitoring, Evaluation and Review (MER) cycles. This will make specific reference to the gathering of a range of first-hand evidence to support whole-school, robust and accurate self-evaluation.
Using identified areas for improvement from self-evaluation, delegates will explore effective practice in school development planning that has secured and sustained improvement, and which complies with national regulations.
· Workshop 1: Effective whole-school development planning that secures and sustains improvement.
. Workshop 2: Effective whole-school self-evaluation; what does an effective MER cycle look like? How is this implemented? (NB: this session will be delivered as a practical workshop in designated schools with schools selecting to attend as many of these standalone sessions as they wish).
Schools are required to bring a copy of their latest SDP with them to workshop 1 to review as part of the tasks on offer.
