Raising A* and As

Discussion in 'Secondary' started by angiefavaro, Mar 8, 2011.

  1. Hi
    I have a job interview on Monday and I would really love some advice on how to raise our number of A* and A s in school as this was one point the school had to improve in their ofsted report. It is for Assistant Head job but being a Head of Year currently I have limited knowledge on this. Thank you for any replies

  3. How about working with KS coordinators to identify G&T students and to offer booster classes to them?
     
  4. Are parents involved?
    Is the target setting model correct?
    Is the curriculum model effective?
    Are teachers trained to teach A* and A grades because it is a skill that is not easy to master overnight? I found the best training for this to be a marker for the exam board.
    Are montoring and tracking procedures rigorous and consistent across the school.
    Is teaching good/outstanding all the time??
    The list goes on, good luck.
