Challenging perceptions of the lesson observation

Following the release of our highly popular observation report, we have conducted an online survey asking Senior Leaders to provide feedback on the practice of the observation process in schools.

Make sure you sign-up for updates to follow our journey and receive the latest insights – we are currently collating the results and will share these shortly.

In this report you'll learn:

  • about the latest research on lesson observation
  • show subjectivity in grading the lesson seems to increase with the seniority and experience of the observer rather than decrease
  • whether lesson observations can have an impact on pupil outcomes

This report examines some of the current theory and practice around the lesson observation and re-ignites the debate surrounding its strengths and pitfalls. It asks if the time has come for schools to consign the lesson observation to the past and instead explore some new techniques for improving and sharing professional skills.
