Their leadership is a significant factor in ensuring high quality teaching and achievement in schools[footnote 12] and a positive and enriching experience of education for pupils[footnote 8]. Together with those responsible for governance[footnote 5], they are custodians of the nation’s schools. Parents[footnote 6] and the wider public rightly hold high expectations of headteachers, given their influential position leading the teaching profession and on the young people who are their responsibility. The headteachers’ standards set out how headteachers meet these high expectations. EEF Metacognition and self regulated learning (1) The curriculum challenge…renewed.

The curriculum challenge…renewed

Whilst schools grapple with the challenges of having all pupils safely attend school, then everything has to be considered anew. The careful sequencing of curriculum still matters a great deal, but as schools are recommended to consider lopping great bits off, then new plans and considerations about curriculum emerge.

In light of these changes, Matt Bromley looks at how schools might plan their curriculum It will not have escaped your notice that Ofsted has published a draft new Education Inspection Framework (EIF) which will come into effect in September 2019. A consultation has just concluded over the proposals and the outcomes have just been published. In addition to an overall effectiveness grade, schools will receive a graded judgement for each of the following areas: Quality of education, Behaviour and attitudes, Personal development, and Leadership and management.

As such, “outcomes for pupils” and “teaching, learning and assessment” are no longer standalone judgements, instead incorporated into the new “quality of education” measure.

Equality Act 2010: advice for schools. Equality Act Advice Final. The Equality Act: What schools need to know. The Equality Act 2010 replaced nine major pieces of legislation and should make it easier for school leaders and governors to understand their legal responsibilities and tackle inequalities in education. Bill Bolloten explains what schools need to know. In his first annual report as chief inspector of education, published in November, Sir Michael Wilshaw wrote: “In the most effective schools, the headteacher and governors establish a clear vision, rooted in an unwavering commitment to ensure the success of every pupil.

Equality of opportunity is at the heart of this vision, with an insistence that all pupils will do well.” Headteachers' standards. National standards of excellence for head teachers. Early in 2014, the DfE announced a review of the 2004 non-mandatory head teacher standards. NAHT had the opportunity to be involved in the review as NAHT's vice president, Tony Draper, was on the review group and took part in a number of meetings to represent our views. The review group elected for very aspirational standards, which will remain non-mandatory, and while these are useful to support head teacher professional development, we were very concerned they could be used against heads by employers and governing bodies.

The review body accepted this was a risk and decided to develop some associated guidance on how these should be used, which is very helpful, and states that: “The standards are different from the teachers’ standards in that they are non-mandatory and they do not set a baseline of expected performance. These standards are intended as guidance to underpin best practice, whatever the particular job description of the head teacher. 10 top tips for school leaders and governing boards - Sutton Trust. 10 top tips for school leaders and governing boards Last week, the Education Endowment Foundation published the EEF Guide to Becoming an Evidence-Informed School Governor and Trustee, designed to offer a quick way into the evidence the EEF makes freely available to all schools.

Phonics is an approach to teaching reading, and some aspects of writing, by developing learners’ phonemic awareness. This involves the skills of hearing, identifying and using phonemes or sound patterns in English. The aim is to systematically teach learners the relationship between these sounds and the written spelling patterns, or graphemes, which represent them. Phonics emphasises the skills of decoding new words by sounding them out and combining or ‘blending’ the sound-spelling patterns. How effective is it? Phonics approaches have been consistently found to be effective in supporting younger readers to master the basics of reading, with an average impact of an additional four months’ progress.

For older readers who are still struggling to develop reading skills, phonics approaches may be less successful than other approaches such as Reading comprehension strategies and Meta-cognition and self-regulation. How secure is the evidence?
