Share our audit tool with your teachers

Use our tool to help your teachers reflect on their use of differentiation.

The audit asks about things such as:

  • Which resources the teachers use, and if they have a range of texts at different difficulty levels available when using texts
  • How they structure activities and tasks 
  • How they develop the use of key vocabulary and language so it's accessible for all groups, but also challenging where appropriate 
  • What questions they ask, and to whom 

For each question, the teacher is asked to consider:

  • Low attainers
  • The most able pupils
  • Pupils with special educational needs (SEN)
  • Pupils with English as an additional language (EAL)
