I hope your term is progressing well and that your school is going from strength to strength.
As you will no doubt be aware, Raiseonline 2013 for KS1 and KS2 scheduled to be out on November 1st.
With the regular changes in the Ofsted framework regarding how achievement is measured, I am again offering a service this year to mainstream primary schools (including infants, lower and junior schools) and primary academies to help take away some of the uncertainty over measuring progress and attainment. This is achieved through a comprehensive analysis of your Raiseonline documents, leading to the writing of an achievement overview which can then form a significant part of your SEF.
You will get a clear, easy to follow three year analysis of attainment overall and groups in KS1 and KS2 and an easy-to-follow pictorial breakdown of overall and group progress and for the end of KS2 over three years as well as a breakdown of how your progression variation data compares to national expectations at both ‘expected’ and ‘exceeds’ levels. These are now vital in measuring progress.
All of these reports are in easy-to-use Word formats and so can be easily modified to go into your full SEF, school improvement plan, governors reports etc. They are designed to be easy follow for governors and other stakeholders.
As I am currently a regularly practising inspector, a former primary school headteacher (I know the pressures you are under) and have worked extensively in self-evaluation with over 200 schools nationwide over the last two and a half years (thus giving me a wealth of practical ideas which can help you), I am in an ideal position to help take some of the burden from you and give you back time to spend on the things which will really drive your school forward.
There are two options for the above, the prices of which have been held from last year:
- The analysis documents only, which cost £375.
- The analysis documents and a KS1 and KS2 report overview which could form the basis of the achievement section of your SEF is £475.
Both of these figures are for the work to be done without a visit to the school and the work will be emailed to you on completion. This would be guaranteed to be delivered to you by the end of the autumn term. If it can wait until the start of the spring term, there is a £25 discount on the above prices.
Alternatively, from February onwards, for £549, I could spend a day with you on site where I will go through this work thoroughly with you and up to two members of your staff, therefore providing valuable CPD whilst taking away a major and time consuming job. I will of course also continue to offer the full SEF service as outlined on my website for those schools that require a more comprehensive service.
References confirming the quality of the work are available on request.
