Update for new 2019 Ofsted Framework

On 16th January 2019 Ofsted released their new draft inspection framework – is your school ready?

According to Ofsted’s press release we can expect that ‘these changes will move Ofsted’s focus away from headline data to look instead at how schools are achieving these results, and whether they are offering a curriculum that is broad, rich and deep, or simply teaching to the test’

This course will be essential to update school leaders of the new and revised expectations within the much publicised, proposed Ofsted Framework 2019.

With the a greater emphasis on curriculum intent and how schools interpret the National Curriculum to meet the needs of their children, school leaders are now in a position where it is necessary to evaluate the ‘offer’ they give and how they prepare all children to make good progress and become better prepared for the next stages of their learning.
