If you need more information on quality assurance and school improvement plans, our FAQs will be able to answer any questions you have.

Quality assurance is how education provision is reviewed, so that high standards of quality and efficiency are maintained. It will typically include internal and external evaluation of teachers and school leaders, alongside assessment of students.

A quality assurance plan puts QA efforts in the context of a desired target, and sets out the way to reach that target. It can include a combination of reviews, feedback and testing, alongside documents and charts that measure progress.

A school development plan (SDP) coordinates the priorities of a school and the main outcomes it’s aiming to achieve. It details the measures that should be put in place in the pursuit of those outcomes, and the resources that should be devoted to it.

A good school development plan should be centred around Ofsted’s four principal inspection categories, so that outcomes can be placed in the context of measured school performance. The categories are: quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, and leadership and management.
