  This is a highly practical course and is aimed primarily at classroom teachers but is also appropriate for members of the leadership team. Delegates will leave with a very clear understanding of the expectations of the current inspection framework with regard to teaching and its impact on learning. They will look at strategies and approaches to bring about improvement in the quality of teaching. By the end of the day, delegates will:
  • have a clear understanding of what the current inspection framework would expect as part of highly effective teaching.
  • have a clear view as to any misconceptions they may have held regarding what constitutes the most effective teaching.
  • be clear as to the importance of establishing a positive climate for learning in a classroom.
  • understand more clearly the similarity in criteria between teaching that may be judged as good and that judged as outstanding.
  • have a clear view as to the importance of monitoring the learning of all pupils/groups during a lesson and being confident in moving away from their planning, if needed.
  • have reflected on the effectiveness of their current assessment and feedback practices in order to identify any possible gaps.
  • be confident to return to school and to discuss the key aspects of this course with colleagues in order to open up a debate on the way we approach teaching.

Aimed at

All teachers or members of leadership teams in primary schools or primary academies who want to gain a practical understanding of how to move the quality of teaching from good to outstanding.

Course Overview

This course is designed to support all teachers or members of leadership teams in primary schools or primary academies who want to gain a practical understanding of how to move the quality of teaching from good to outstanding. The course will focus on Ofsted expectations and our understanding of what this means for our own teaching. It will explore ways of developing a positive climate for learning. It examines the seven key aspects of teaching and the non-negotiables and ‘withitness’. The course includes analysis of video clips of different teachers in action and challenges any misconceptions regarding outstanding lessons particularly with reference to inspection-style judgements.

Detailed course outline and session time table

Session 1

  • A detailed analysis of what we feel are the key factors of the most effective teaching and how these compare with the Ofsted criteria.
  • The importance of developing a positive climate for learning in a classroom and discussion of some of the main aspects of this.

Session 2

  • Identifying the seven key aspects of teaching and how they can be broken down into manageable strands so teachers can focus on key aspects of their work.
  • The importance of assessment and feedback strategies as part of the whole teaching and learning process. Outlining of the ‘five principles of AfL’.

Session 3

  • Observation of video extract(s) of teaching in order to inform our understanding of more and less effective teaching.
  • Discussion of these extracts and reflection time for delegates to consider the implication of what they have seen on their own teaching.

Session 4

  • A focus on ‘withitness’ and non-negotiables in order to ensure full involvement of pupils in their learning and to help teachers reflect on their practice.
  • A return to the current Ofsted criteria in order to gauge our improved and deeper understanding of the ways in which teaching can move from having a ‘good’ impact on pupils’ learning and outcomes to having an ‘outstanding’ impact.
