Background

Context in September 2009:

  • Out of 12 special schools in Northamptonshire, most were assessing well, moderating well and presenting their data to the School Improvement Partner (SIP) well. However, they were doing it idiosyncratically. All agreed we needed to do this in a joined up way and the process would now need to include the Progression Guidance data and key principles.

It was agreed we needed:

  • a systematic agreed process for presenting whole-school/key stage/year group/vulnerable groups/individual progress data to the SIP
  • an amendment to the SIP form so each SIP would ask for this in the same way, in the same order, from each school
  • a form for schools to complete before the SIP visit so that each school was preparing the information in the same way and going through the same process
  • a case study school to report the impact of this back to the Deep Dive project.
