Collecting information about your school

| 2 Comments

When you begin to take part in discussion about your setting and when you begin to write assignments you will need some basic information about your school to provide contextual background. It would be useful if you could collect this information and have it to hand over the opening weeks of the course.

This includes:

Type of School (LA / Academy etc)

Location of school (rural, suburban, urban)

Age of pupils

Number of pupils on roll

Number and type of staff

% of pupils with SEND

% of pupils learning EAL

% of pupils with Pupil Premium

Unusual or distinctive features

  1. What are unusable or distinctive features?

    • It should have said unusual, Kim, thanks for pointing out the spelling error. I’ve corrected it. Unusual or distinctive features of your school might be something special or different that your school does.
