360 Review

A 360 review tool for helping schools and their staff to self-evaluate against the Teachers’ standards, Ofsted’s EIF, staff wellbeing and more.

The Lessons Learned 360 Review module has been developed to support teachers and leaders self evaluate against various standards recognised by schools across the country.

The module recognises the importance of self-reflection and helps schools to make the most of this within their school improvement processes. Using radar charts (or spider web charts), the module can be used to complete self, peer and other types of review against many different elements of practice, such as the Teachers’ Standards and staff wellbeing (see below). It can also be used at subject and year group level to conduct department reviews, or “deep dives”, providing SLT with an assessment of the Quality of Education and other elements of the Ofsted framework.

Radar charts allow for powerful analysis through layering. For example, individuals can layer their own self reviews to track the progress they’ve made throughout the year. School leaders can layer reviews completed by different departments or even create an average based on self reviews by individual staff and layer that against where they believe the school to be at as a whole.

The module allows evidence to be noted and development actions to be identified, recorded and eventually undertaken. It is the ideal tool for helping staff to take control of their own professional development and allows individuals to choose whether they share their reviews or keep them entirely private.

Answer questions such as…

Are staff making progress over time against their key areas for development?

Do staff opinions of their own practice align with those of their peers or line managers?

Based on an average of teachers’ opinions of their own practice, what are the major areas of strength and areas for development in the school?

How does leadership compare across different departments in school?

Slide Staff can assess their own practice against each of the Teachers' standards, capturing their reasoning along the way in the form of notes and attached files and links. Completed reviews can then be flagged for performance management and appear within the performance management/appraisal document. Slide Analysis screens allow for easy comparison between points in time or between individuals, staff roles or departments. Compare single reviews or create and compare averages based on criteria of your choosing (for example, you could compare an individual's review to an average of self reviews for the department they are associated with.) Slide Our average builder lets you create and store any average with your data. Create averages based on reviews completed in a particular time period, for a particular department or for a particular group of individuals and then pull those averages into your radar chart for direct comparison. Slide Review the spread of data across your school or department using our box and whisker charts, with comments from your staff summarised by spoke below. Slide Get a deeper level of understanding by digging into comments made by staff, organised by spoke. In this example, we're able to see the comments made by two staff related to the Self-Awareness spoke of our Wellbeing tool. Slide All of our radar types can be switched to 'Survey Mode' if staff prefer to complete them this way rather than on a radar chart. The published results can then be analysed on radar charts as per usual.

Staff Wellbeing

School staff wellbeing has always been important but it has become a topical issue in recent years. The Covid-19 pandemic has added another unwelcome set of issues for teachers and other school staff to deal with. Good school leaders have always recognised that a happy and healthy staff leads to happy students and better outcomes. Understanding staff wellbeing (including workload) and continually seeking new ways to improve it is important for any school which wishes to be a “Learning Organisation”. Our Wellbeing feature on 360 Review is a simple way to survey and influence your staff’s wellbeing.

Important for School Leaders

360 Review allows Wellbeing reviews to be submitted anonymously (if individuals agree) so that school leaders can review and act on the 32 influencing factors (e.g. Teamwork, Workload, Entitlement, Communication). Easy to use analysis allows leaders to review by key groups such as teachers, teaching assistants and support staff over time.
