Peer Review is Making a Difference to Lincolnshire Schools

9th February 2018

In December 2017, the Lincolnshire Learning Partnership conducted a flash survey of Lincolnshire schools to compile a snapshot of the extent to which school-to-school peer reviews are being embedded in practice and with what kind of impact.  A total of 169 schools responded, representing just over 46% of Lincolnshire schools. The top-line findings from the snapshot survey show that headteachers overwhelmingly believe that peer review feedback is enabling them to improve their schools and to enhance outcomes for children and young people. Notably,

  • 86% of respondents are actively involved in a peer review group.
  • Nearly 63% of respondents received a peer review between January and December 2017.

Of the respondents who received a peer review between January and December 2017,

  • 98% report that the feedback from the peer review enabled their schools to improve teaching and learning, and
  • 93% report that the feedback from the peer review enabled their schools to advance pupil outcomes and achievements.

The LLP would like to thank all the headteachers who took the time to complete the brief survey, and all the schools that are actively participating in the peer review process. Our findings strongly suggest that peer review is  a valuable tool in supporting schools in their endeavours to continuously improve and enhance teaching and learning and outcomes for children.
