Challenge Partners Review 2018/19
Challenge Partners is a practioner-led national network of schools that improves school performance through peer-to-peer challenge and knowledge sharing. Each school in Challenge Partners recieves an annual Quality Assurance (QA) Review. The QA Review is a peer review involving senior leaders from other schools in the partnership. The review has a whole-school remit and focuses on teaching and learning, which enables practioners to have deep conversations about the quality of learning in the school being reviewed.
All outcomes are agreed between the school and the review team as part of an ongoing professional dialogue that seeks to unpick and articulate effective teaching practice and school improvement strategies. Review reports are best viewed as a summary of conversations betweeb peers during three days spent in school.
By nature of being a collaborative peer review, the QA Review is different from other external inspections. Due to the review's focus on teaching and learning, the review does not consider arears such as safeguarding or governance and its outcomes are not directly comparable to an Ofsted inspection.
