BPSI School review
The BPSI School Review process forms part of the Monitoring and Challenge element of the Partnership. The key principle is that schools, supported by the LA and BPSI, have an overriding responsibility to routinely monitor, review and evaluate what they do. In order to build capacity within the school headteachers, deputy headteachers and other senior staff will be invited to work alongside their colleagues carrying out the review of learning and teaching and where appropriate other areas of the review process.
The findings of the BPSI School Review will help schools to identify strengths and weaker areas so that the former can be celebrated and disseminated and the latter can be supported. BPSI would be happy to work with the school to provide this support so that pupil learning is enhanced and standards rise. Commissioning a BPSI School Review can be a key element of your school's improvement journey that could contribute to a successful Ofsted outcome.

How to arrange a BPSI School Review
1. Choose your lead reviewer
Read through the pen pictures of the BPSI advisers who have had experience of inspecting schools for OfSTED (see the list below). Decide who you would like to lead your review and make contact with them and agree the date of your review. Advisers' contact details are available on the BPSI Members or from the BPSI Business Support Team.
Also read and become familiar with the Protocol and Procedures document (see below)
2. BPSI arrange supporting heads
BPSI will arrange which headteachers (see the list below) will support the BPSI Adviser during your review. If you have any strong views (for example you could be close friends with a person on the list and feel their inclusion on the team would be inappropriate) then urgently contact BPSI Business Support Team. All conversations will be held in confidence.
3. BPSI will ensure the review happens
Once you have agreed the date with the BPSI Adviser who will lead the review, the BPSI Business Support team will then liaise with all interested parties to ensure your review takes place.
