BCSE Decent School Standard Proposal
The Decent School Standard was officially launched on Wednesday 25th January, our chief executive, Nusrat Faizullah, described it as 'the beginning of the decent schools movement'. And under 24 hours later, we are delighted that so many organisations are already looking to get involved with the development of the Standard. If you would like to know more about the Decent School Standard and the programme of the day go here.
The BCSE's model for the Decent School Standard
Through our work within the Great Schools Enquiry and using the evidence that has been collated on learning environments, the BCSE has created a model that brings together the factors required for a Decent School Environment.
The proposal is below for reference.
Process to create the Decent School Standard
Together with partners, we wish to create the different elements explained in the proposal over the next year. Below is a proposed timeline:
Phase 2: APRIL -- MAY -- Conduct a survey with hundreds of different schools to analyse the relationship between factors within the learning environment and outcomes on different stakeholders.
Phase 3: JUNE -- AUGUST -- Develop and test toolkits and evaluation tools.
Phase 4: SEPT -- DEC -- Take the Decent School Standard into schools via a road show making materials available to all. And use the standard as the basis for advocacy (that evidence shows that learning environments do make a difference) with clients (e.g. LAs, academy chains, dioceses) and with politicians, decision-makers and key opinion formers.
