Masterclass overview:

The Cultural Diversity Quality Standard (CDQS) provides clear aspirations for both multicultural schools and those located in areas of limited diversity. Working towards a set of criteria will help your school to achieve areas of the new Ofsted inspection framework.

This masterclass is designed to help you self-evaluate against the framework.  The CDQS measures a school’s success within the following five key areas:

1. School ethos

2. Achievement

3 .Curriculum

4. Parent/carer involvement and community role

5. Staff and governors.

By attending this masterclass you will be able to have a better understanding of the Cultural Diversity Quality Standard (CDQS) and how your School work can work towards the 5 key areas.

Delegates attending this masterclass will:
