Support Teaching & Learning through mutual agreement; deployed by the head of teaching and learning in agreement with 30 members of staff following a poor Ofsted report and a significant downward trend in results.
Progress of staff over time was discussed in confidence during one to one sessions with Kate.
Teacher confidence improved as did in house judgments and results over time.
Requested to work with staff by staff where results were on a significant downward trend. Staff self-identified areas they would like to develop and worked with Kate on a plan /do /review basis. This led to sustainable improvements in each classroom over time.
Tactical support role in a converter academy where staff numbers needed to be significantly reduced. Assessment and development opportunities were provided to all teaching staff, progress over time recorded and shared with management.
Whole school/academy observation training and development to include the wider expectations of Ofsted and to ensure accuracy and consistency of judgments.
