Teaching Schools

Current numbers of schools - some are both Primary/ Secondary or or SEN PRU/ Sec Pri etc

Immediate concerns

Ofsted heavy criteria summative model at odds with formative culture of improvement? Why cannot schools set their own criteria locally or have peer schools set it against agreed national framework rather than Ofsted? Professional disenfranchisement perhaps?

Lack of innovation in the model?

Industry partners "built out" notional self-referential metrics as opposed to real life outcomes/ mentoring - funding will tend to top down admin - where is the agility here? How to build this in? :Outreach" mentioned - this is very nebulous.

No scope for experimentation - coaching and mentoring mentioned where are the strategic connectives for this - model will tend towards attainment of criteria rather than analysis of process and development of effective strategies especially with centralised portal

Old Legacy model as opposed to innovative approaches

Scaled to run into admin inertia possibly. Where are the more daring alternate models based on informal or allied metrics?

Where are the models for Action Research here?

Creation of fiefdoms or satraps rather than institutions that are more open to existing communities - where are the connectives to local community?

Masquerading as "localism" but really top down model with centrally defined criteria - no diversity

Where is there any mention of entrepreneurial activity here? Why not? Culture of 'control" rather than risk - torque - at odds with quickly evolving web -enabled world.

Looking at the criteria I would say very few schools are going to be able to meet these...
