Between departments, pastoral leaders, student observers

Description

A secondary school shows how pastoral leaders, students observing lessons and co-operation between departments has dramatically improved the problem of in-school variation (ISV).

Some of the biggest variations in achievement can be between departments, rather than between schools. Teachers from Gordano School in Bristol talk frankly about how they have tackled this sensitive issue.

The school shows how departments now work together, the new role for pastoral leaders and the impact of students observing lessons.
