    20. Heads & senior leaders The headteacher, governors and senior leaders are relentless in their drive to sustain pupils’ outstanding achievement and the highest quality of teaching. Senior leaders set excellent examples in their own teaching and, in turn, have very high expectations of all members of the school community and will settle for nothing less than the best. Wickford

    26. Good teaching The teaching is consistently sound and some of it is very good indeed. 55% The teaching is excellent, even inspiring, and this is true across the school. 12%

    27. Great teaching Teaching is outstanding. Expectations are high and work is challenging. Basic skills are taught exceptionally well. Danbury

    28. Great teaching Pupils in this school love learning. This is the heart of everything they do. Teachers have very high expectations of what pupils can achieve. Lessons are well-planned and exciting and ensure pupils of all ages are keen to learn. The curriculum is highly engaging. Planned activities help pupils to develop self-confidence yet keep a sharp focus on core skills which will enable them to move on to their next stage in learning. Colchester

Basildon

    38. Which is which? Attainment is good or better Progress is good or better One is cited in 44% of reports. The other is cited in 11% of reports.

    39. The common negatives Teaching is inconsistent. Not all teaching is outstanding. Too much teaching is dull or routine. 40%

    40. In more detail… Dull, slow-paced, rigid and/or superficial teaching style 19% Teachers talk too much, pupils not enough 7% Pupils lack independence 19% Marking is poor and doesn’t give useful feedback 44% Poor match of work to need/weak differentiation27% Fuzzy assessment for learning 32% Poor data monitoring 14%

    41. Great teaching A key strength of much of the teaching is the way teachers use assessment data to ensure that all pupils are challenged to achieve the levels of which they are capable. Teachers ask individualised questions to move pupils’ learning on quickly. For example, the most able mathematicians in a Year 3 group made leaps in their learning when the teacher asked specific questions about how they might formulate a systematic method to check their answers. Teachers’ excellent subject knowledge ensures that they are able to model answers and responses which pupils are then able to emulate effectively. In an outstanding French lesson  pupils learnt a great deal in a short space of time and thoroughly enjoyed doing so. They were able to speak in full sentences and acquired large amounts of new vocabulary quickly. Working with partners, pupils made their own matching games to practise the names of the foods they had learnt.

    42. Negative about some subjects Reading 7% Writing 27% Speaking & Listening 2% Mathematics 19% Science 0%

    43. Negative about some pupil groups Least able More able Boys 24% 5% 3%

    44. Negative about some pupil groups Least able 5% More able 24% Boys 3%

    45. Reasons to be cheerful Profoundly caring Great atmosphere Good teamwork Great behaviour Supportive parents Strong early years Respectable reading results Reasonable progress Sound teaching

    46. Watch your back Teaching is sound, but not consistently good or outstanding Pedestrian teaching styles Ineffectual marking The unstretched able Assessment for learning isn’t getting back to the pupils Weak writing, in many cases Weak maths, in some cases Ineffectual or disempowered subject leaders

    47. Is Good good enough?

    48. To be outstanding in Essex Strong, stimulating teaching across the school is the main goal.

    49. To be outstanding in Essex Take a more active approach to the more able.
