Leading your School's Ofsted Inspection
This course is offered jointly with the National Education Trust
Ofsted is introducing a single Common Inspection Framework (CIF) from September 2015 for maintained schools and academies, further education and skills providers, registered early years settings and non-association independent schools. This will enable settings to be inspected to an equal set of standards and aims to ensure consistency and an improved ability to compare different types of provision.
‘Leading your School’s Ofsted Inspection’ is designed to give you the skills and knowledge to take back to your organisation in order to help lead your school through future Ofsted inspections. The day will address recent changes made from September 2015 when Ofsted dramatically overhaul the inspection system.
Please register interest below and we will keep you updated
Inspectors will make 4 graded judgements on the same areas across all remits:
- effectiveness of leadership and management
- quality of teaching, learning and assessment
- personal development, behaviour and welfare
- outcomes for children and learners
There will be a greater emphasis on safeguarding, the quality of early learning, the breadth of the curriculum in schools and the relevance of courses and training in further education.
Ofsted aim to deliver frequent, shorter inspections for schools, academies and further education providers judged good at their last inspection. These should take place approximately every 3 years and will provide an opportunity for greater professional dialogue between inspectors and leaders. They will focus on whether the quality of the provision is being sustained and whether leaders have the capacity to drive improvement. These inspections will allow Ofsted to identify decline early. They will also give schools and providers which are improving the opportunity to demonstrate this improvement to Ofsted sooner.
Ofsted will set a new baseline by inspecting all non-association independent schools under the new CIF and against the revised independent school standards within the next 3 years.
