The quickest and easiest way to capture evidence of 'good' or 'outstanding' activities in your school.

Why is evidence so important?

  • Ofsted need "sound" evidence to help them reach "outstanding" judgments under the new Inspection Framework (2012).
  • Senior leaders need school-wide evidence to help them prepare an accurate self-evaluation (SEF) or school improvement plan (SIP).
  • Teachers need ongoing evidence to to help them review their teaching practices and make continuous professional development (CPD).
  • Parents and carers need evidence to help them choose your school initially - then keep informed of ongoing effectiveness.

The PrimaryGrid helps you capture, analyse & share evidence of outstanding teaching, learning and leadership in your school. See it in action by creating your own Grid or watching this video.
