Crossacres received its second consecutive outstanding Ofsted judgement in January 2023
As you all know the quality of education judgement forms half of the Ofsted grade during an inspection so it's vital to feel confident in this area.  The session will cover our strategy over the past few years to prepare for this. What we do evidently works for us and we are really happy to share this with you. 


What you will learn

The session will cover how to:

  • structure your staff to manage your curriculum and spread workload
  • plan your curriculum
  • writing schemes of work – what you need to include
  • delivering the schemes of work – how to support staff
  • monitoring the delivery of the schemes – 3 different strategies that make sure all leaders know what is going on in their subjects
  • decide what action to take when things aren't going to plan
  • assessing the foundation subjects in a manageable way
  • use assessment results to move things forward
  • keep governors informed about the curriculum

It will be an informal session and we will give you copies of all our forms to use or adapt.

The session will also include a walk around school.


Who is it for?

All Senior leaders and curriculum leaders.
