Will your school web site be ready for September?
As Mike Briscoe highlighted recently in his blog post the Government have changed the publishing requirements for schools with effect from September 2012. You are no longer required to publish a prospectus but instead must make key information available online.
From September, schools will be expected to publish:
- Pupil Premium allocation, use and impact on attainment
- curriculum provision, content and approach, by academic year and by subject
- admission arrangements
- the school’s policy in relation to behaviour, charging, and SEN and disability provision
- links to Ofsted reports and to the Department’s achievement and attainment performance data; and details of the school’s latest Key Stage 2 and 4 attainment and progress measures.
While this information should already be available in the school, this has potentially shifted the focus as to who will be responsible for delivering the information in the expected format.
