Addressing the fallout from a poor school evaluation

What was the issue addressed?

I was appointed as Chair of Governors of a school in a low Estyn category. The senior staff were in denial and governors felt that they had not been properly advised about issues in the school

What happened?

A new Headteacher was appointed who had a totally different outlook.

We reviewed the Post-inspection Action Plan (PIAP) with a new & experienced Challenge Advisor.

Progress against the PIAP was carefully monitored.

What lessons were learnt?

School now has a better reputation in the Community and has verified high standards of Wellbeing.

Staff have a pupil focus that has resulted in all pupils being valued.

KS4 Examination results have recovered.


Have you ever had cause to doubt the judgement of your school’s leadership on the issues relating to the quality of provision? If so, what did you and/or the governing body do about those concerns?

What do you think would be the challenges and opportunities of implementing a PIAP?

Have your say…

Have you had experiences similar to these? What do you think about the situation described?
