  7. Part 4 Planning for Excellence

  8. Building on strengths in planning • Well-established cycles • Direct links to outcomes for learners • Bringing together external expectations and needs of learners • Professional reflection and teamwork • Involvement of school community

  9. Agreeing vision and values Aspirational Shared ownership Dynamic Looking to the future environment Rooted in what the school knows about itself Learning and teaching at the heart

  10.

Curriculum for Excellence

  11. Identifying priorities, specifying outcomes and planning delivery Arising from school’s vision Expressed as outcomes for learners Taking account of CfE capacities Relating to a broad range of achievements Using dimensions and quality indicators Based on data Manageable number Capable of being evaluated

  12. Role of EA • Help to formulate vision • Judge when to intervene to support schools • Support creativity and innovation • Make an active contribution at all stages • Make local and national priorities understandable, accessible and practical • Achieve appropriate balance between prescription and providing freedom for schools to respond to the needs of their own communities

  13. What HMIE look for in schools Planning which: - is based on the evidence of ongoing self- evaluation (JTE Part 3 – HGIOS3, TCAC)- makes use of a wide range of data - is ambitious and aspirational, and based on a real vision for the school- involves parents, learners, partners and staff- focuses on delivery- builds on the positive and makes use ofexamples of excellent practice: JTE Parts 2 and 5 (website)- is flexible and responsive to changing circumstances

  14. What HMIE look for in schools Plans which: - are high level- have a small number of priorities relating to learning and achievement- interpret EA and community priorities within the school’s own context- present these priorities as outcomes for ALL learners- result in demonstrable impact on ALL learners

  15. The most effectiveplanning • is proportionate • involves the whole school community • builds on identified strengths • focuses on action, not bureaucracy • can be recognised by the extent and quality of its outcomes for ALL children.

  16. MAKING USE OF JTE • When planning for improvement – building on strengths, suggesting action points • When discussing how to develop learning for pupils and CPD for staff – groups and individuals • As source of best practice: places, people, published research • Use the movie clips in talks (parents and staff) and as illustrations of best practice – add to them on the EA website? • Use the learning trails for individual CPD and within in-service sessions

  17. Future developments • Continuing support to EAs, pre-school centres and schools, further filming focused on specific themes and additional learning trails • New JTE development officer (joint HMIE/LTS): Sally Fulton – to work from LTS (the Optima building, Glasgow) • JTE CLD development officer: Angus Williamson (D&G) – adapt resource for CLD • JTE FE development officer: Bob Murray – adapt resource for FE
