Ofsted has published its new education inspection framework, introducing new key judgements around quality of education, behaviour and attitudes and personal development. The core proposals of the new framework have been received positively by respondents, particularly the attention to how a school's curriculum can be designed to give all pupils the appropriate knowledge and skills to succeed in life irrespective of background. However, many leaders in the field are questioning how schools will be able to meet these revised standards with the current resources and funds available to them. With the new framework due to be implemented from September 2019, now is the time to get ahead of the curve for the new school term.

Join Westminster Briefing in September for an update on the education inspection framework, a discussion of the new core proposals and good practice examples of schools who have already begun to implement changes. This event will examine the revisions that have taken place, the impacts they will have on schools, and the ways in which institutions can meet Ofsted's new education inspection framework.

Key issues to be addressed include:

  • Timescales, potential amendments to the final framework, and next steps for implementation
  • Preparing for inspections and gathering evidence going forward
  • Placing greater emphasis on curriculum and giving less weight to exam results
  • Approaching Quality of Education within the curriculum
  • Ensuring an inclusive culture and curriculum for all pupils
  • Understanding the Personal Development, Behaviour & Attitudes and Leadership & Management criteria
  • How schools can prepare for September 2019

The event:

This event will provide an opportunity to discuss the new inspection processes and explore the new judgement areas schools will need to prepare for. The day will be divided into three main sessions:

  • New Inspection Processes
  • Inspection Framework Judgment Areas: Quality of Education
  • Inspection Framework Judgment Areas: Leadership & Management, Personal Development and Behaviour & Attitudes

Attendees will have the opportunity to engage the expert panel throughout.

Who should attend?

Anyone with an interest in school inspections, including: head/deputy/assistant headteachers; principles & chief executives; schools administrators; governors; LEAs; teaching unions; inspectors; and representative groups. This framework will apply to maintained schools and academies; non-maintained special schools; pupil referral units; community learning and skills providers.
