HMI INSPECTION EVIDENCE REPORT
Latest HMI inspection evidence report extracts from SchoolsCompany’s school improvement contracts being delivered in schools in special measures over the period from 2013-2016.
“Most notably, SchoolsCompany have begun to play an important role in strengthening the capacity of leaders at all levels to drive and embed some of the most basic changes that underpin good schools. Straightforward and robust actions have been introduced to develop good teaching practice, monitor students’ progress and highlight how staff should be held to account for students’ progress. Training for the extended leadership team is underway and joint work with teachers is enabling students to have extra tuition in order to improve results. Leaders and managers at all levels are positive about the changes primarily as there is a shared view that prevailing practices are unacceptable. Teachers are clear that the demands on them have begun to make a difference to their approach to teaching. Senior leaders have responded well to the support from the education management company”.
“Together, they have re-structured the senior team so that skills are more carefully matched to duties. Senior leaders have received additional management training. Consequently, systems for monitoring, including performance management, have been strengthened – targets for staff to achieve are sharper. Training on using assessment information and, developing leadership and management skills at all levels has been delivered. Additionally, departments supporting students with either special educational needs, and/or learning English as an additional language, have been streamlined. Systems for analysing data have been simplified and the inclusion team has been re-established”.
