Ready For Change? DfE New Performance Measures and Post-16 OFSTED

Last opportunity to fully understand the new DfE measures and get an OFSTED update.

A highly regarded half-day event to explain the impact of changes to how you are compared nationally – and ensuring you are fully aware of the latest post-16 Ofsted focus.

July 10th, 2017.  9.30 – 1.00  South Bromsgrove School

Presenters:

Ian Dadswell (Oxford Analytics Performance Lead)
Phil Drabble (Independent School Improvement Adviser and Ofsted Inspector).

A highly regarded half-day event to explain the impact of changes to how you are compared nationally – and ensuring you are fully aware of the latest post-16 Ofsted focus. This is an additional session following the oversubscribed events earlier this year.

A half-day event that will look at key elements of the assessment of post-16 performance and effectiveness. This is a single session that encompasses the foundations of external assessment of sixth forms.
2017 brings the new DfE Performance Table measures and changes to both their calculation and the calculation of Value Added. In addition, from 2015, key changes have been made to the Ofsted Evaluation Schedule. In order to bring Heads of Sixth Form and senior managers fully up to date, we are providing this session to explain and explore how you are now compared with other centres and the future inspection of sixth forms.

How does DfE see you?

Ian Dadswell will provide a detailed explanation of the changes and the calculation of both outcomes and progress values for centres and subjects. Using a summary report on your centre (provided*), you will be guided in the analysis and interpretation of the information about your centre.
* subject to the data on your centre being reported in 2017.

Ofsted inspection of your Sixth Form imminent? How ready are you?

During this session Phil Drabble will provide delegates with an update on key changes in respect of the Ofsted evaluation schedule. He will explain what inspectors consider when inspecting Sixth Form provision and how they use post-16 data and the previous inspection report to establish key lines of enquiry which are used to shape the inspection. He will talk about the importance of accurate and comprehensive self-evaluation in the context of school inspection.

Intended outcomes from this event:

  • Be fully aware of the new measures and their impact
  • Have a detailed understanding of the calculation of Performance Measures and Value Added.
  • Be able to summarise and interpret the data being reported.
  • Understand the latest Post-16 Ofsted model.
  • Be able to better engage in the Ofsted process and, in doing so, increase chances of a positive outcome

Intended Audience

Head Teachers/Principals and SLT: Strategic overview of the DfE’s changes to performance reporting and Ofsted’s post-16 focus.
Head of Sixth: Confidence to develop a sound analytical approach to performance analysis and self evaluation –  in the new model.
