This course is aimed at new users to Analyse School Performance (ASP). It will support delegates to navigate the site and to interpret their 2019 school results (Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2). Delegates will be supported to make the most of the tools and options available within ASP, such as filtering the data and drilling down to individual pupils, and to explore the key points for school improvement.
The course will also explore the key features of the Inspection Data Summary Report (IDSR) which has changed from last year's format.
This course is aimed at new users to Analyse School Performance (ASP). It will support delegates to navigate the site and to interpret their 2019 school results (Key Stage 4). Delegates will be supported to make the most of the tools and options available within ASP, such as filtering the data and drilling down to individual pupils, and to explore the key points for school improvement.
The course will also explore the key features of the Inspection Data Summary Report (IDSR) which is expected to be available with 2019 data by the date of this course and, if available, the 16-19 IDSR.
New for 2019-20, this half-day follow up session is provided for a strictly limited number of delegates who have attended the autumn session of our Assessing and Securing GDS in Year 6 writing course. The same advisers from the English and Assessment teams will deliver the session.
Across the morning, delegates will have the opportunity to explore their pupils’ progress in writing in light of the earlier training and be supported to evaluate areas of strength and areas for further development.
This session will provide plenty of scope for professional discussion around Year 6 writing and progress towards the greater depth standard, as well as the opportunity to share in good practice across a range of settings.
Places are strictly limited in order to facilitate tightly focused professional dialogue and guidance.
One of the challenges of the current GCSE specification is making the Higher Tier accessible for students who should be gaining Grades 6 and 7. There are many students who are good enough to work beyond the Foundation Tier, but who find the Higher Tier papers daunting.
Using the experience gained, since 2015, of the new-style GCSE, this course will support teachers and schools in enabling such students to succeed.
The day is divided into two equal halves, to enable the course to be shared between different delegates if this is more convenient for schools.
This new course has been created in response to requests from teachers for accessible ‘bite-size’ training events.
Using the ‘cluster’ format, these half-day sessions will run at locations around Hertfordshire. We will be taking a look at classroom feedback and explore some quick tweaks and easy-wins in making our practice more effective for pupil progress and developing independent learners.
The sessions will be a mix of adviser-led activities and table-based discussions focussing on current practice in schools.
Are you aware the Schools Financial Value Standard ( SFVS) 19-20 has changed? It is important that you are prepared for these changes not only from the perspective of compliance but also from using it as a framework for good financial management in schools.
“The schools financial value standard helps to provide schools with assurance that they are meeting the basic standards necessary to achieve a good level of financial health and resource management”, 2019-20 Schools financial value standard, Gov.uk
To support Governors and leaders of schools maintained by Hertfordshire County Council with the new SFVS, Herts for Learning has produced a pre-recorded webinar which outlines the changes to the SFVS for 19/20. The webinar, to be published during November, will help delegates understand the focus of the SFVS and its value in helping schools to understand their financial position.
This will be followed in January by four live Q & A webinar sessions. By attending one of these live sessions, delegates will learn more about the new SFVS 2019-20 and have an opportunity to ask further questions.
