Subject leader deep dives day

This day includes a detailed curriculum review with an experienced VNET associate working closely with a subject leader to audit the focused curriculum area, and identify strengths and areas for development.

Following this session, the VNET associate will write a summary report to be shared with your school and (if appropriate) your Trust, which can form part of the school’s self-evaluation and external validation.

Review of Governance

This review is led by trained VNET associates who are also governors and is based on the six areas of competency within the DfE’s Competency Framework for Governance (January 2017). 

This review will ensure your governors have an overview of the effectiveness of your governance arrangements. It will also highlight whether your governing body is fulfilling its responsibilities as laid down within the Scheme of Delegation. 

As a result of the review, governing bodies will be able to demonstrate to what extent they are exercising their duties and that their governance arrangements are robust and able to withstand challenges from external agencies.

The Ofsted Phone Call

The rationale of this practice is to enable school leaders to rehearse their pre-inspection phone call in a low-stakes environment. It is likely the recipient of the call will have booked a time with a VNET Associate for it to take place.

Coaching is key to this approach and whether the coaching element takes part during or at the end of the conversation, it is vital to ensure there are learning points for the school leader which are shared and worked-through.
