Please complete the online evaluations (direct to you via email) Kent Governors Association Ambrose Oliver Matthew Roberts Autumn 2015 Commissioning School Places David Adams Area Education Officer Autumn 2015 Progress in Implementing Proposals For September 2015 our commissioning intentions were to: Commission 30 Year R places in Ashford South - not needed as numbers were lower than forecast. Commission a new primary school for Finberry, Cheesemans Green. Opened off-site in Sept 2015. Will move to permanent location in Sept 2016. Expand Wyvern School by between 60-70 places consulting on an expansion of 80 places (from 190 to 270).
Woodchurch CEPS increased its PAN from 20 to 26 for Sep 2016. Forecasting accuracy - Primary Forecast Reception Year 2014/15 Actual Reception Year Jan 2015 Forecast Primary Roll 2014/15 Actual Primary Roll Jan 2015 1573 1480 10476 10327 Reception pupils were 6.3% higher than forecast. Total rolls were 1.4% higher than forecast. Forecasting accuracy - Secondary Forecast Year 7 2014/15 1331 Actual Year 7 Jan 2015 1330 Forecast Secondary Roll 2014/15 6428 Actual Secondary Roll Jan 2015 6445 The forecasts for both Year 7 pupils and secondary pupils generally were very close to the actual numbers on roll in January 2015. The total secondary forecast was lower than the actual roll by 0.3%.
Targets Maintain between 5% and 7% surplus capacity in each District: Reception Year: January 2015 7.2% Years R - 6 January 2015 4.3% Across Kent ensure that 85% of parents secure their first preference primary school and 84% secure their first preference secondary school: 89% of primary parents and 83% of secondary parents secured their first preference school. Birth Rates Ashford, Kent, National Ashford births Housing Ashfords core strategy (2008) states the target of 20,000 new homes to be built in the Borough between 2001 and 2021. By 31 March 2015. 7,919 new homes were completed. The current housing trajectory for completions suggests between a further 8,000 to 10,000 new dwellings being completed by 2021. 2016/20 Draft Commissioning Plan Demand for school places is mainly caused by inward
migration connected to house-building and the birth rate (at 2 to 3 points above the County and National rates). Although the birth rate dropped significantly in 2013 there was a slight recovery in 2014. The number of births in 2014 remains 4FE fewer than the peak of 2012. The expansion of schools and opening of three new schools since 2012 has kept capacity in line with demand. Moving forward, temporary expansions will be needed to manage the peak in demand for Year R places in 201617 and 2017-18, and new schools will be required to support major housing developments. 2016/20 Plan Secondary places Secondary pressures begin in Year 7 in 2019-20 when demand is expected to exceed supply, and by 2021-22 only 2% of all secondary school places are forecast to be vacant. Plans are in place for a new secondary school in the Chilmington Green development (5,750 homes) from 2022-23. 2016/20 Commissioning Plan Primary Commissioning Position: Planning Group By 2016/17 By 2017/18 Ashford South

We consider that these schools are not supporting their pupils to make the progress they should. DfE September 2015 From 2016 a coasting school will be defined as in which: In 2014 and 2015 fewer than 85% of pupils achieved level 4 in reading, writing and mathematics and below the national median percentage of pupils make expected progress in reading, writing and mathematics, and in 2016 fewer than 85% of
children achieve the new expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics.

New inspection documents The new common inspection framework and handbooks for each of Ofsteds remits come into effect from September 2015 for the inspection of schools, further education and skills and early years provision: A leaflet for maintained schools and academies The common inspection framework: education, skills and early years from Septe mber 2015 School inspection handbook from September 2015 School inspection handbook for inspections under Section 8 of the Educatio n Act 2005 from September 2015 Further education and skills inspection handbook from September 2015 Early years inspection handbook from September 2015 Non-association independent school inspection handbook from September 2015 Inspecting safeguarding in early years, education and skills from September 2015 Recognition of Exceptional Leaders
Ofsted has also announced plans to recognise exceptional leaders. Ofsted will send a letter to a leader who has played a key role in turning around other institutions acknowledging their leadership as exceptional. A copy of this letter will go to the Secretary of State and Ofsteds Annual Report will also feature those leaders who have been recognised in this way. Emphasis of New Framework Capacity of leaders at all levels to bring about sustainable improvement Some thoughts: Leadership structure: roles, responsibilities and leadership time? Involvement of middle and senior leaders in monitoring, improving the quality of teaching, the SEF and improvement planning? Senior/middle leaders understanding and use of data their impact in closing gaps How does performance of school relate to the SEF? How is implementation and impact of items on improvement plan monitored and evaluated? What happens to the results of performance management? Monitoring of the quality of teaching and its follow-up including CPD Leaders role in developing pride, ambition, and confident and resilient learners Leadership of the curriculum (rationale for design, involvement of stakeholders, use to raise aspirations, evaluation of its impact, what information is shared with parents, SMSC British values) Emphasis of New Framework Safeguarding: Not just about compliance but about effectiveness Governing Body to: Walk the floor an consider if you feel safeguarding has a visible profile in school Regularly monitor the single central register
Experience relevant staff training and induction, and monitor their frequency Check colleagues understanding of the latest safeguarding updates, especially Prevent and response to allegations against staff (including the Headteacher) Monitor staff understanding of the whistle-blowing policy Consider a safeguarding audit Ensure policy reflects April 2015 changes (ask IA to look at it) Preparation for inspection Good schools have only one day to show they are still good, underpinning the importance of: Brevity of written and verbal information - Less is more, know the wood from the trees. Staff and students showing pride and ambition Demonstrating leadership capacity at all levels Articulating a clear understanding of what the data shows Summarising strengths and actions to address weaknesses confidently Having a concise, accurate and highly evaluative SEF Effective school improvement planning with targets, milestones and monitoring of impact Keeping the focus on the things that make the difference to the judgments First impressions Thank you for your participation any questions?
