Advice from people who have been through a subject deep dive
« on: January 02, 2020, 12:16:17 PM »
Be clear on the progression in your subject.

Can you talk through your curriculum map and highlight the progression of skills?

I talked through our curriculum map and then had to find the evidence in books to show what that progress looked like.

As you are teaching, try to ensure that children’s work demonstrates the skills they are learning.

The deep dive was very much a triangulation of talking to subject leaders, other members of staff and the children themselves, so be prepared for that.

They wanted to see some art being taught and asked about children who were working at a greater depth, so make sure they are catered for.

They asked what we did to provide for those children and wanted to see examples of how they were challenged, and then spoke to that individual child too.

They also asked about how we know the children’s next steps and how it is recorded.

Have you been through a deep dive? Why not share your advice by replying to this post.

My school had Ofsted in October and I'm lead for geography and history. Deep dive was in history but I also had a 'shallow' dive in geography.

I've attached a question & answer sheet I did for a school we are linked to.
