LA Review - what does this mean?

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by Dave100, Jan 19, 2011.

  1. I worked for an LA last year who did a number of reviews.
    In many cases the school found them to be rigorous as 3-4 advisors would be observing lessons, looking at planning and books etc. Many found the feedback useful and when OFSTED do come along the LA have a good handle on what's going on at the school already. Also, the reports I saw were detailed and gave the schools quite clear targets and areas for development.
    I also know that a new Head asked for a review. This was perfect for her as she was able to make headway on a number of inititaves before OFSTED came.
    On the down side, there's a bit of extra pressure on staff as they will be observed!
