St Benedict’s Catholic Primary School has used our standard, Ofsted-based framework that comes free with the online version of Lessons Learned, but they’ve amended the layout to better suit their own needs. Rather than having individual sections on the form that cover Engagement and Enthusiasm, Resources and Time and so on, they’ve combined these sections to create a more concise form where staff only need to use the descriptors if they want to.
Click through the presentation below for a more detailed look at how St Benedict’s uses Lessons Learned to conduct their lesson observations.
Cyril Jackson Primary School have created their own framework with 20 key areas of focus. Each area has it’s own section on the form with a comment box, some brief evidence for what ‘Developing’, ‘Securing’ and ‘Mastering’ looks like and a dropdown for marking that focus area as either a strength or development point.
This comprehensive framework results in a very informative graph that gives SLT an overview of the strongest and weakest areas in the school. Individual staff can also see graphs summarising their own strengths and development points.
