This excellent Assessment without Levels consultancy provides an opportunity to gain excellent guidance and advice to support you to raise Attainment and Progress measures across Subjects and all Pupil Groups in your school and demonstrate positive impact and school improvement following the introduction of Assessment without Levels.

The Assessment without Levels consultancy will also provide you with the tools, knowledge and expertise to calculate your own pupil/school progress measures quickly and easily.

The Assessment without levels course will take account of assessment and progress across Key Stages and different groups of pupils in your school, including disabled pupils, those who have special educational needs, ethnic minorities, disadvantaged and those for whom the Pupil Premium provides support.

When Ofsted visit your school they will wish to see evidence relating to your understanding of Assessment without Levels this one day consultancy will provide you with important information about the latest developments to support your drive to raise Attainment and Progress measures in your school across subjects and pupil groups.

When judging achievement, inspectors must have regard for pupils’ starting points and age, and the progress that the lowest attaining pupils are making..

OFSTED will also look for evidence relating to:

• the proportion of pupils making and exceeding expected progress is high compared with national figures
• pupils making rapid and sustained progress across many subjects, including English and mathematics
• the learning, quality of work and progress of groups of pupils, particularly those who are disabled, those who have special educational needs and those for whom the pupil premium provides support, show that they achieve exceptionally well
• where the proportion making expected progress overall is lower than that found nationally, it is improving over a sustained period
• the school takes effective action to enable most pupils, including disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, to reach their potential.
• the standards of attainment of almost all groups of pupils are likely to be at least in line with national averages, with many pupils attaining above this.

The Inspection Dashboard RAISEonline Training will also provide you with the tools, knowledge and expertise to calculate your own pupil/school progress scores quickly and easily.

Throughout the training session, you will complete a full analysis of your RAISEonline Inspection Dashboard and complete a next step action plan in response to your RAISEonline data.

English and Maths leaders, SENCo’s and Gifted and Talented leaders will have the opportunity to develop Subject based action plans in relation to their subject responsibilities and subject based data. This also ensures an analysis of trends across a 3 year period.
