Recent reforms to the primary school accountability framework have radically changed the way pupil performance is measured, monitored and accessed.

School leaders have new responsibilities to implement new curricula, raise pupil attainment and publish school performance data, which will then be scrutinised by Ofsted during an inspection.

On this Excelling at Primary School Accountability course, delegates will gain the necessary tools to overcome the challenges of implementing an effective school accountability strategy.

Delegates will learn from successful case-studies and industry experts about the latest reforms, and develop practical tools on how to raise pupils’ progress and attainment, demonstrate accountability through data and get the highest possible rating at an inspection.
