Discover is a graphical analysis tool which allows users to interrogate data from within SIMS and present it in a highly visual way using the latest technology. It uses a unique interface allowing users to simply ‘drag and drop’ from pre-defined categories to create graphical analysis such as progression lines, bar charts and Venn diagrams. The user is able to click on the graphs to drill down to individual student data and identify target groups. You can easily compare results against pupils using data from SIMS.net, for example pupils with free school meal eligibility, attendance or behavioural issues and EAL.
Discover is a valuable analysis tool for school leaders which will make the experience of accessing information intuitive, perceptive and quick, with the focus of helping your school to raise standards and evaluate student performance and attainment.
This one hour session will provide an overview of the functions available in Discover including how to further analyse this data and create dynamic groups.

Jo Briscombe, Teaching & Learning Advisor & CPD Lead at SGCC, Inspector
This workshop will cover:
The new inspection framework puts the curriculum at the heart of inspection. Subject leaders need to be able to clearly articulate the intent, implementation and impact in their subject.
Quality of education will be inspected through an approach using ‘deep dives’ into a selection of subjects where inspectors will gather evidence from a range of sources including lesson visits and workbook scrutiny. Conversations with leaders, teachers and pupils are central to the deep dive model. Inspectors will invite curriculum leaders and teachers to take part in joint scrutiny and visits to lessons.
This day-long course will support subject leaders to become familiar with the expectations of the new framework; be confident to identify and discuss their subject evidence of impact (for example through work scrutiny) and know what next steps to take to develop their subject further,

This full day CPD session will enable headteachers:
· To have a clear understanding of the expectations within the 2019 Teacher Assessment Frameworks (TAF) and moderation guidance
· To be clear about roles and responsibilities
· To be able to make accurate judgments about moderate Y2 and Y6 TA
The morning session will focus on Writing at Year 6 and the afternoon session will focus on reading and maths at Year 2. Both sessions will look in detail at the 2019 STA materials for EXS and GDS; will consider what is an appropriate evidence base and will provide opportunities for facilitated cross-school moderation.
Those attending will need to complete the following pre-reading task:
Pre-read the exemplification materials for Frankie, Morgan (KS2) and Ali, Kim (KS1) and will also need to bring with them:
· Copies of the exemplification materials for KS1 maths, KS1 reading
· Their most able pupil’s evidence for reading and maths at KS1
· Copies of the writing exemplification materials for Frankie, Morgan, Ali and Kim
· All this year’s books for two Y6 borderline pupils (WTS/EXS and EXS/GDS) – i.e. all English books and topic/RE/Science books from this academic year.
Please ensure you do not bring any 2020 KS1 tests as this would constitute maladministration if the materials are shared before the 3rd June
The WGSP Peer Review Programme
Huw Evans, Realising Learning
The WGSP Peer Review programme is a professionally led peer reviewed, focused on teaching and learning. It involves head teachers and senior leaders, led by an independent education consultant, visiting other schools to evaluate the quality of education. It is collaborative in its approach and encourages the sharing of good practice in an open and honest manner to enhance the rigour of school self-evaluation. The reviews are about having a dialogue with the school and the Review group works as a team in a supportive manner.
After the review, schools should have systems in place to embed what has been learnt back into the practice at their schools. This can be in many different forms depending on the findings of the review but with the key aim to improve pupil outcomes.
Session 1 – For all schools participating in the Programme
Working together: Setting protocols, expectations and criteria for working together; Planning a focus; Starting points (Looking at data; Looking at the schools’ SEF; Looking at the schools’ SDP)
Session 2 – For those schools participating in the programme (Max. 6 schools on these dates)
Collecting evidence – In the classroom; From books and planning; Pupil voice
The Peer Review in Action – For those schools participating in the programme
Working alongside the reviewers in each others’ schools to coach and support either with or without Huw’s support (additional cost) to be agreed by participating school
Session 3 – For those schools participating in the programme
Feedback and next steps.
