The new primary school accountability framework has radically changed the way pupil performance is measured and monitored. As a result of recent forms, school leaders now have new responsibilities to implement new curricula, raise pupil attainment and publish school performance data. All of this is now set to be scrutinised by Ofsted during an inspection.

Join us for this Westminster Briefing to gain the necessary tools to overcome the challenges of implementing these changes. Learn from successful case-studies and industry experts about the impact of latest reforms, and develop practical tools on how to raise pupils’ progress and attainment, demonstrate accountability through data and get the highest possible Ofsted inspection rating.

Key Issues to be Addressed:

  • Latest policy update on primary school accountability
  • Key principles and challenges of the new accountability system framework
  • Demonstrating school performance to Ofsted at inspection
  • Raising the attainment of children with SEND
  • Effective monitoring and measuring of pupil progress
  • Publishing headline performance measures on your website
  • Benchmarking your school against others using national data
  • Incorporating the key principles of pupil progress into an effective school accountability system

The event:

The morning session will examine latest policy on primary school accountability and identify key principles and challenges of the new accountability system framework.

In the afternoon delegates will learn from successful case studies and develop practical tools to overcome the challenges of implementing an effective school accountability strategy.

Morning refreshments will be served upon arrival with a networking lunch to follow. Any special needs or dietary requirements should be notified to us upon booking.
