The second section lists the three domains titled teaching, learning and leading alongside the panel comments.
The final section is the school determined next steps in self-assessment process. The statement is:
Kings Langley Public School will continue to use and refine evaluative and critical thinking as a disciplined approach to inquiry and reflective practice, to make sound on balance judgements using purposeful, relevant and targeted evidence. We will continue to work with all stakeholders and hold professional discourse to strengthen evaluative practice within the school ensuring that there is always a shared vision and connectedness between all stakeholders.
To increase our staff's ability to use evidence well, the leadership team will continue to build the capacity of teachers to utilise SCOUT reports (such as value-added, student growth and The Premier's priorities) to drive planning and resource allocation. As a result of this self-assessment, the school has already arranged for representatives from the Centre for Education Statistics and Evaluation to present a series of workshops to staff at the beginning of 2020.
School improvement measures and our evaluation plan (as documented in the 2018-2020 School Plan) will be monitored and adjusted accordingly to ensure that they support the school's rigorous, continuous improvement process. Additionally, there will be a focus on planning the nature and timing of information gathering, to assist with ongoing evaluation and inform decision making. Systematic economic evaluation will also be integrated into our processes and practices.
Assessment practices within the school will be reviewed and changes made to ensure that a range of formative and summative assessment practices are used to flexibly and responsively to support data analysis and drive teaching and learning programs.
