Monitoring and Evaluating your School Development Plan Hollie King November 2013 In this session we will discuss: How to set up a monitoring framework;

Ideas for a monitoring pack for governors; How to share monitoring outcomes with governors and build an evidence trail. What is monitoring and evaluation?

Monitoring: finding out what the school is implementing/ providing Seeking Evidence Evaluating: finding out what difference

this makes to the pupils Assessing Impact Who monitors and evaluates? Head and senior staff monitor, evaluate and

report to governors. Governors ensure monitoring and evaluation is happening AND review outcomes of monitoring and evaluation. We do this because we are required to hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils. Step One: Understand your School Development Plan

Know what your priorities are and why they are in the SDP. Understand how (and when) the HT and Senior Leadership Team (SLT) will monitor progress. Be clear about the success criteria. Step Two: Develop a SDP monitoring calendar for the GB: To complement the schools programme;

To develop capacity within the GB; To provide governors with structure and focus to the monitoring role. Some examples to discuss SDP Monitoring Calendar in October 2012 (Handout 1) In July 2013 (Handout 2) In October 2013 (Handout 3) SDP Monitoring in School
