Presentation at Westminster Education Forum, 7 November 2013

.

Becky Francis put in a good word (thanks!) and I was invited to make a five minute pitch at a recent Westminster Education Forum event on Raising Pupil Attainment.

Fellow contributors on ‘Improving Provision for High Ability Pupils’ included:

  • Sally Coates (Burlington Danes)
  • Melanie Saunders (Hampshire LA)
  • Denise Yates (Potential Plus)

Here is my Powerpoint which is, I guess, as good a summary as I can manage of where I think we are, six months on from the publication of Ofsted’s ‘The most able students’.

The penultimate slide presents some key elements of a middle way between top-down national prescription and bottom-up school-driven improvement.

I have been advocating this for some time in my area of specialism, though it is potentially applicable to the entire business of school improvement.

No sign yet of any substantive support for this approach: too many are still too wedded to the bottom up model, even though its shortcomings are daily becoming more conspicuous.

I plan to write more about that next year.
