You can review the impact of the improvement process by judging how far and in what ways you have achieved these outcomes. Each outcome will be best judged by the subject leader, department, line manager, senior leadership team or an external consultant.
Subject leader and department
The subject leader and department can evaluate the following outcomes.
- Targeted additional support for pupils (Waves 2 and 3) is linked to their main learning (Wave 1), and teachers direct the work of additional adults in the classroom to support the identified needs of these pupils.
- The progress of pupils identified as needing intervention support is being tracked and, those pupils are making good progress.
- Pupils know their own learning needs and what to do in order to improve.
Subject leader and line manager
The subject leader and line manager can evaluate the following outcomes.
- All pupils in Years 7 to 11 who are working below expectations and have the potential to achieve more have been identified and are being appropriately provided for, and their progress is being tracked systematically.
- The departmental process of pairing for collaborative work and any professional development opportunities provided have impacted on teachers’ practice.
Subject leader, senior leadership team intervention lead and external consultant
The subject leader, senior leadership team intervention lead and external consultant can evaluate these outcomes.
- The department has the capacity to sustain renewed or revised approaches to intervention in science, and has clear plans for further development of high-quality, linked Wave 1, 2 and 3 tailored provision.
- Where needed, science teachers have opportunities for professional development to enable them to provide tailored support for pupils who need it in science.
- The school has the capacity and expertise needed to provide personal tuition for pupils with particularly intransigent barriers to learning, or who have much ground to make up.
