OFSTED3 steps

Understand the context of the school

Plan and take actions

Evaluate impact

Who are the key stakeholders? Working with partners – involving the school community

Who has contributed to your shared understanding of the context? (Exercise 1)

Identify the key partners and other agencies who can contribute to each of the 4 aspects of the toolkit

Identify with your stakeholders how their attitudes and responses have changed and contributed to their school and its work

Consider the 4 aspects from Learning together to be safe to identify main actions (Exercises 3 to 6)

Process - How will you engage stakeholders in the dialogue

Identify from your context the key factors for improving achievement, safety and well-being (Exercise 2)

Use the TDA impact evaluation tool to analyse and finalise outcomes for each main area of action

Embedding – Have you identified resources and linked your actions into other strategies and resources?

What do you do now that you can build on? Are there other strategies to be added?

What resources, tools, and strategies provide support for effective implementation? (Exercise 7, Case studies, Resource catalogue, and signposts)

Who will be responsible for analysing the impact, how often, and with whom?

What are the intended outcomes and what will be the impact? - Keep the end in mind

Common understanding by all of school community of the main (2 or 3) areas for making a difference

Identify key actions (no more than 3) for each aspect of the toolkit to be included in the school improvement plan

Review and revise your contextual narrative to reflect changed circumstances and the impact of your actions

Exercise 1 write a narrative of the context of the school10 l.jpg
Exercise 1 – Write a narrative of the context of the school

Examples of a contextual narrative

School A: serves an area of low deprivation. Pupils from village and wide rural area. Estate of families in village with social problems, young single parent families and high crime (drug related) which inhibit opportunities. Almost all families are White British, with very few from other cultural backgrounds. Some families have very narrow experience beyond the village so some have a limited understanding of wider communities. It is also a school with a particular faith based intake policy.

School B: serves a very diverse urban community, with pupils from a very wide range of cultural, ethnic and linguistic backgrounds. Broadly: White British 22%, Black African 22%, Black Caribbean 9%, Asian 24%, Eastern European 8%. It is an area of high social mobility and significant deprivation. Families who remain in the area usually have low aspirations and high dependency. There is diversity of faiths and high levels of active worship but most travel out of the area to different faith centres.
