Independent School Review is aimed at those who are concerned with self-evaluation and performance management in their Independent School - Heads, Deputy Heads, Department Heads, Staff responsible for Performance/ Quality etc. They will discuss, and agree, how the program, or programs, can be used within the School and organise deployment, as appropriate.
The key outputs of Independent School Review are subject/ department/ school self-evaluation reports, ISC & CSCI pre-inspection self-evaluation reports, improvement action plans that can be monitored and balanced scorecard performance reports which are fully described in Working with Independent School Review. There is a document that can be accessed to descibe all the self-evaluation and report options that are available using a number of workbooks.
Independent School Review was launched in June 2006 and upgraded with input from the embryo User Group after actual use.
Experience shows that the best way to introduce Independent School Review is for Anthony Darbyshire to visit the school for a 3 hour session with the Head and senior colleagues. The session comprises a demonstration of all sooftware features, a debate on how best to use and deploy the software and a practical IT session. This lays the foundation for a successful introduction.
A current aim is to introduce these programs, by demonstration, to as many schools as possible. If you are a member of a regional group, e.g. Deputy Heads, which would be interested in these new products, please contact Anthony Darbyshire (01777-711141) to arrange a presentation at a regional meeting.
