From 2021, Broadlands School will be assigned an Evaluation Partner from ERO who will engage with the school more frequently.
For 2022, an collaborated ‘Evaluation Focus’ (question) has been establised as follows:
‘How effectively are we targeting student learning needs through deliberate teaching processes and practices in writing?’
Rationale for Focus
The school have been involved in Accelerating Learning in Literacy (ALL) professional learning for four years. Over this time there were significant staff changes resulting in
some challenges around consistency and coherency of implementation.
There has been no formal in-depth evaluation focused on the impact of teacher practice on valued learner outcomes in writing other than mid-year and end-of-year
ALL reporting to the board of trustees (BoT) and Ministry of Education (MoE).
It is now timely for the school to evaluate this impact to ensure there is schoolwide coherent and effective practice for teaching and learning in writing.
