Module description

To truly understand the effectiveness of your school, the acid test is the extent that the organisation supports each and every pupil to reach their potential.

Your board are expected to know how to judge if your school is doing this and to address areas where it needs to improve in a strategic way, holding the school and its leaders to account.

This module has been designed to ensure you have all the relevant knowledge needed to carry this out and provides an approach to using various key information sources to provide an accurate benchmarked assessment of how well your organisation is supporting its pupils' achievement. It also demonstrates how a governing board can ensure that a lack of progress by current students is addressed effectively by school leaders and how to take a strategic approach to address more deep rooted areas of weakness.
