This intensive one day course looks in detail at how to effectively evaluate current practice and strategies to improve attendance and encourage good behaviour. Throughout the day there will be many tips and tools that can be used to ensure that school monitoring and tracking procedures are incisive, lead to an accurate evaluation and result in effective plans of improvement being created. The current emphasis during inspection is to ascertain what behaviour is like typically at a school rather than simply during inspection, therefore a detailed behaviour evaluation is needed. This course helps participants to understand how to develop a robust evidence base that can be shared with senior leaders, local authority, academy sponsors and OFSTED detailing the effectiveness of provision.

Securing good attendance requires a concerted sustained whole school approach and needs to improve over time.
