Bag your school a complimentary 14-day trial of Pastoral Auditor during February!
The brain child of a visionary deputy headteacher from Telford, Pastoral Auditor is the industry’s first secure online pastoral effectiveness tool for secondary schools & academies.
Developed by safeguarding specialist SSS Learning, Pastoral Auditor enables educators to deliver detailed evidence of different year and gender groups’ knowledge and understanding in PSHE, Citizenship, Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development and Personal Development and Welfare to improve strategy planning.
Using Pastoral Auditor, teachers can audit the consensus of pupil groups over time, building a secure, centralised ‘hub’ of evidence for Ofsted and demonstrations of ongoing strategies to support vulnerable young people. To celebrate its launch, SSS Learning is offering a complimentary 14-day trial of the tool.
The Ofsted School Inspection Handbook (Handbook for inspecting schools in England under section 5 of the Education Act 2005, August 2016) clearly identifies key areas that inspectors look for including spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and personal development, behaviour and welfare.
“For pastoral care to promote positive relationships for learning, it is vital that educators listen to learner perspectives and communicate regularly. Once key areas of focus are profiled using Pastoral Auditor, pupils can ask pertinent questions promoting reflection or embedding prior learning.
Boyle adds: “Pastoral support relies on a high level of attentiveness so we have created Pastoral Auditor to prompt appropriate discussions amongst teachers and tutors with their student groups. This new solution should feature in every headteacher’s toolkit!”
Pastoral Auditor features surveys covering the breadth of pastoral issues, including Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education; Citizenship; Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development including British Values; Personal Development, Behaviour & Welfare and General Pupil Opinion. At key points in the audit, engaging animation clarifies areas relating to a series of questions.
