..... it's all about the evidence .....

Whether you are preparing for an external accreditation/ inspection event, or pursuing an improvement agenda in your class, key stage, department or school, you will do best if you work with the evidence... but how best to collect it? How best to collate? Analyse it? What if it doesn't give you a full enough story?
