  • Key Stage 1
  • Key Stage 2

Brief Overview

Implementation is a key aspect of what schools do to improve, but too often the who, why, where, when, and how are overlooked which can mean implementation risks becoming an ‘add on’ task expected to be tackled on top of the day-to-day work. As a result, projects initiated with the best of intentions can fade away as schools struggle to manage these competing priorities.

This two-part course offers practical insights to help school leaders plan for sustainable change that aims to positively impact all pupils, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Drawing on the EEF’s tiered model and implementation reports, this training will support school leaders in determining how best to focus time, effort, and resources by identifying evidence-informed strategies with the greatest potential to support pupil attainment.

Learning Outcomes


Part 1: Writing your SEF - this session will draw on the Ofsted grade descriptors to support the formation of an accurate, well-informed and robust school self-evaluation form (SEF).

Part 2: Writing your SIP - this session will focus on how to use the EEF's tiered model for school planning to support the implementation of a short-, mid- and long-term evidence-informed school improvement plan (SIP).
