We are looking at various systems to help with school evaluation. I am fairly new to SMT in a new academy and my responsibility is for school evaluation. I think it depends on which aspect of school evaluation you are looking at. We looked at Blue Sky which is a web-based framework system. You basically fill in the boxes and it takes you through a process. You get out what you type in. It is mostly about performance management and CPD. Our starting point was the new Ofsted inspection schedule. I am approaching it as an inspection team would. It tells me that we may need to have systems for different areas. JGSearl has put some useful resources onto this web site to do with inspection preparation, including observing lessons. We have made a priority of the way that Ofsted will judge leadership. We have had advice that what SMT says about teaching will be important in what judgement they make about leadership. We have been using the 4matrix system for a few months now and it will rank every teaching group in order of residual. I would recommend looking at it as it was not expensive and it has changed our approach by making subject leaders completely responsible for teaching and attainment in their subject. It gives them all the information they need to compare their subject with other subjects and write reports that link intervention to results.
