Coventry Schools' Successes Go On The Web 
BY ANTONY HOPKER

Three Coventry schools have been invited to share the secrets of their success on a new national website that will help other schools raise standards.

Ofsted have asked Grange Farm, Keresley Grange and Allesley Primary schools if they will be listed as they were praised for good practice.

They will be listed with other schools from across the country whose inspections took place between January and July 2000, and who received a report from inspectors identifying effective practice.

The website is being set up to allow schools that need help with problems get in contact with those who have been a success in similar areas.

The site will list a range of aspects that judgements are made on during inspection.

It will be available through a protected password, which will be publicised to schools in the letters that will accompany the Ofsted annual report.

For each theme, a list of schools will appear where effective practice has been spotted.

The list will show the name of the school, the LEA and contact details and provide a direct link to Ofsted 's public website and each inspection report.

To avoid one school having to field lots of pleas for help from colleagues around the country, and to minimise the burden on schools named on the site, new schools will be added as further  inspection reports are published.

Each school is expected to stay on the site for a year.

The site will be available through a protected password, which will be publicised to schools in the letters that will accompany the Ofsted Annual Report, due to be issued in February 2001.

Cllr George Duggins, Cabinet Member (Education and Library Service) said he was delighted that the city schools would be able to help others.

He said:

"There is a lot of good work going on in Coventry schools and I am delighted that we will have the opportunity to share the areas of good practice with others in this way.

I hope the initiative is a success and am sure that other Coventry schools will have the opportunity to share their areas of expertise following future Ofsted inspections."
