The value of leaders especially head teachers in developing good practice

Key elemant of AfA is the support from SLTs - The school ethos must reflect the 3A's - Achievement, Access and Aspirations

focusing on outcomes not processes- reducing the need for large meetings about process

More use of data which is month to month not year to year

Tracking carefully used . Not 32 different measures but just one hoilistic measure that gives valuable detail- reported centrally- very simple system

Teachers have full access to the data

Not just attainment data but other contextualised data to enable all teachers working with the child to alter and refine provision.
