On 21st November, we are bringing together a selection of policymakers with senior and academic school staff to discuss how best to provide effective teaching, learning and assessment to help push most-able children and ensure they reach their full potential while also creating an ambitious and productive working environment in which all pupils can flourish.
Taking place in Central London, this pivotal forum will feature insights from the Deputy Director for Education Inspection Policy at Ofsted, as they discuss how schools can improve teaching and achievement for the most able students by developing a culture of high expectations and appointing specific staff to champion the needs of the most-able.
Alongside this, delegates will gain insights from schools who excel in challenging most-able pupils in key areas where Ofsted found significant failings through interactive case studies. Places at this forum are limited to facilitate active discussion between speakers and delegates. As such, early registration is advised. All content is CPD-certified with presentations sent out after the event.
