As soon as we saw ProgressTeaching Vision we knew that it would aid us in our drive to raise standards of teaching and learning throughout the school.
It has allowed our Middle Leaders to analyse teaching and learning data in a time efficient way, allowing them to facilitate more meaningful professional dialogue to develop the practitioners within their teams.
Nicola White, Associate Deputy Head, Woodlands School
Woodlands School has been on a continuous improvement journey with ProgressTeaching since 2015. They wanted to identify areas for improvement whilst reducing teacher workload and saving time.
Woodlands also wanted their Heads of Faculty and Heads of Departments to have more conversations with teachers about improving their practice.
ProgressTeaching Vision is now being used by Woodlands School as its centralised dashboard for assessing and improving the school’s quality of teaching.
The dashboard is Woodlands School’s data analysis tool and has enabled teachers to have more developmental conversations backed by data-rich information.
Hours of time have been saved which has meant time can be spent on teacher development rather than trying to find data.
Reflection on the observation process and quality assurance of their assessment process has led to school-wide development and improved consistency.
Areas for improvement have been highlighted from data that is instantly available. This has led to leaders being able to have constructive developmental conversations with their teams about strengths and improvement areas.
