The Subject ‘Deep Dive’: Your Role as a Subject Leader

The ‘deep dive’ in the inspection framework has caused a lot of anxiety and uncertainty – but it doesn’t have to be that way. Our experiences of supporting secondary schools across the country have shown that there are some key things that subject leaders can do to ready themselves for inspection, leaving them increasingly confident in their team, educational standards in their subject – and how they support the senior leaders.

  • The deep dive methodology - what does it mean for subject leaders?
  • Monitoring and conversations to build consistency
  • How to clearly communicate and maintain vision & values
