Description This half day course is aimed at primary school leaders, including English, maths and science subject leaders.   Course Outline   Changes to the inspection framework have made it clear that, when judging teaching over time, more weight needs to be given to the evidence of learning and progress in pupils’ books. This should lead to much more focus being given to book scrutiny as a natural part of a school’s self-evaluation process. This course is aimed at helping school leaders be more effective and efficient in their book scrutiny activities. The training will address the following: How can we make book scrutiny more meaningful? What are we looking for? How can we use the ‘7 Strands of Excellence’? What does being at the National Standard look like in relation to different year groups in writing, mathematics and science?
