The CQS are designed specifically to improve classroom practice in gifted and talented education. They have been developed in order to:
- promote a shared understanding and greater consistency in evaluating effective provision in the classroom
- engage teachers and practitioners in classrooms and early years settings in reviewing their practice – individually and in collaboration with others – in order to identify strengths and areas for further exploration and improvement.
The CQS are a key tool for leading teachers for gifted and talented education. They support the role of the leading teacher in working:
- with senior and middle-level leaders to evaluate and plan development of classroom provision as an integral part of the School Improvement Plan
- collaboratively with teachers to improve classroom practice.
This flyer explains the Classroom Quality Standards (CQS), and gives information on the accompanying DVD and web based resource. The CQS provide an essential self-evaluation and improvement tool focussed on classroom practice in gifted and talented education.
