Teaching & learning
Effective schools successfully progress the learning and development of all of their students, regardless of background, beyond their normal expected rate of growth. To support the progress of their students, many schools regularly review their performance to identify ways they can become more effective.
As part of this review process, schools often base their evaluations on evidence from practice. This means that decisions about areas of school performance that need to be improved are informed by data.
We have developed a range of surveys that form the basis of a school self-review. You can use these to collect feedback from your school’s key stakeholder groups: parents, students and teachers. Each of the surveys is based around a set of standards for School Self-Evaluation which have been developed by Cambridge International and tailored specifically for Cambridge schools. The standards are grouped into five key areas, or domains. Each domain contains a set of standards which help to define the features of an effective school.
Once you have conducted the surveys, we will produce a report on your results which combines and compares responses from parents, students and teachers. We will then schedule a video conference or face-to-face meeting with your school leadership team. At this meeting, you can discuss the report’s findings, decide on any areas for further analysis, and identify the next steps you would like to take in in your school improvement process.
Our School Self-Evaluation process is an additional service for Cambridge schools for which there is a fee. It includes the following:
In addition to the above, schools can add between three and five questions to the three surveys relating to a specific issue. This issue can be discussed in the initial meeting.
Requests for additional data analysis, after the stakeholder report has been produced and discussed with school leadership, can also be accommodated.
Fees are detailed below.
We also offer Cambridge schools the opportunity to enlist the help of an educational consultant to advise on specific areas for school improvement, including:
