Whole school/academy reviews

Working with senior and middle leaders, we will support with identifying, developing and improving provision, including teaching and learning.  We  can provide the school with detailed information on how well it is doing and what needs to be improved. We can support you with actively engaging in the school improvement process in order to enhance students and teachers learning and achievement.  We can offer reviews on a particular aspect of the schools work or a broader review, based on the initial brief.  We work in partnership with senior leads so that they know the components of school improvement and are able to speak about aspects of the schools work to internal or external bodies. 

Pre-inspection reviews  

Using the services of Fig Tree International Ltd, the pre-inspection review can be a partial review or a full review. When setting up the contract, we agree the brief and can provide advice based on best practice, offer feedback and key recommendations on areas requiring improvement. Although a formal judgement is not provided, your school(s) will undoubtedly be well prepared for a formal inspection.


Self Evaluation

Self Evaluation is intrinsic to any school improvement process. We offer a principled and strategic approach. The service offered by Fig Tree International Ltd ensures that there is active participation of all key stakeholders. Whether it be starting the evaluation process from the beginning, or modifying what is in existence already, we can help. It is important to validate judgments and within our organisation we have consultants who are skilled at this.

Departmental reviews

Using our specifically selected subject advisors, Fig Tree International Ltd is able to offer departmental reviews. Using work scrutiny, lesson observations, data, staff and student interviews, we can build a comprehensive picture of the department. We can conduct deep dives into particular subjects. Our report will summarise what the department is doing well and identify areas for improvement.


Safeguarding reviews

Although safeguard monitoring was a requirement in Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE) 2016 there was even more focus in the September 2018 update. “All school and college staff have a responsibility to provide a safe environment in which children can learn". Our safeguarding review, at Fig Tree International Ltd uses a comprehensive audit tool and provides an overview of safeguarding within your organisation, whilst confirming areas you may wish to focus upon to improve.

Our School Improvement packages are 2 - 5 days, plus any required report writing, with longer term packages available, as requested.
