How to use this resource to improve practice
Schools should engage with all local stakeholders, with a particular emphasis on parents and carers, to create a shared improvement plan. The increased emphasis on partnership approaches is intended to achieve greater impact on children’s and young people’s attainment and achievement.
Securing the widespread support of the school community will help achieve significant, positive impact on children’s and young people’s experiences and outcomes.
- Does the plan take proper account of the local context?
- Is the school’s annual report a succinct summary of the school’s progress and achievements?
- Does the improvement plan demonstrate effective, collaborative self-evaluation?
- Is the improvement plan manageable, within the resources available to us, and is its impact measurable?
