Observation & Learning Walk Performance Grid

Observation & Learning Walk Performance Grid

For use alongside lesson observations and learning walks, this succinct performance grid enables observers to gauge and categorise teaching and learning sessions using OFSTED guidance for effective teaching. The first page of the document provides descriptors of 'outstanding', 'good', 'requires improvement' and 'inadequate' teaching within appropriately considered focus areas, for example: Questioning, Planning, Use of Additional Adults, etc. Schools that already employ this tool often opt to highlight the descriptors on this page as they observe, thus creating a bigger picture of the strengths and areas for improvement in the teaching and learning observed. Schools who still grade individual lessons have noted that this is a helpful aid in arriving at an overall judgement. The second page allows observers to further pinpoint and describe the 'www' (what went well) and 'ebi' (even better if) aspects of the lesson, in order to make feedback to teachers more clear.

Marking and Feedback Performance Grid

Marking and Feedback Performance Grid

For use alongside book monitoring/ work scrutiny, this succinct performance grid enables observers to gauge and categorise marking and feedback using OFSTED guidance for effective feedback. The first page of the document provides descriptors of 'outstanding', 'good', 'requires improvement' and 'inadequate' feedback within appropriately considered focus areas, for example: Frequency, Constructive Feedback, Marking for Literacy, etc. Schools that already employ this tool often opt to highlight the descriptors on this page as they complete the scrutiny, thus creating a bigger picture of the strengths and areas for improvement in the feedback observed. This can also be a helpful aid in arriving at an overall judgement, should your school opt to arrive at one. The second page allows observers to further pinpoint and describe the 'www' (what went well) and 'ebi' (even better if) aspects of the feedback, to aid teacher in improving their practice.

Grade 1 lesson plan template

Grade 1 lesson plan template

This lesson plan has been extremely successful in gaining the highest grade for observations. It covers everything that observers are looking for. It looks a little technical, but once you get used to the format, it's really easy. Every observer, so far, has commented on the extremely well-planned session due to this lesson template. This lesson plan has never let me down! Ideal for new teachers and for those being observed.

New GCSEs Grades 1-9 - Answers to the Key Questions.

New GCSEs Grades 1-9 - Answers to the Key Questions.

I have used this resource to explain the new GCSE changes to other staff, governors, and parents. Feedback has been that it is clear, concise, and answers some of the key questions. In the document, I have addressed: - What changes have already taken place? - When do the changes take place? - How do the new grades equate to the old grades? - Why are the changes necessary? - What are the changes to the English GCSE? - What are the changes to the Maths GCSE? - How will school performance now be judged? Also attached is a visual representation of how the new GCSE grades map onto the old GCSE grades. Within the PowerPoint are a number of links to key information provided by the DfE and OFQUAL. Hope this helps!
