In October, Ofsted Chief Inspector, Amanda Spielman, announced plans to consult on splitting the ‘personal development, welfare and behaviour’ judgement in the current inspection framework, creating a new “behaviour & attitudes” judgement. A key area of concern for the Government and parents alike, many educational professionals have concerns about how such a judgement will work given the difficulties in measuring behaviour and the unique nature of each school’s different circumstances.

Join Westminster Briefing on 13th March for an up to date on the latest policy developments and to examine how schools can improve behaviour and ahead of changes to the Ofsted inspection framework, better evidence their performance. 

Key issues to be addressed include:

  • The Government’s approach to behaviour and what it means for individual schools
  • Alternative provision funding and reforms
  • Behaviour in the new inspection framework, a separate "behaviour & attitudes" judgement and what this means for inspections
  • Evidencing behaviour performance to parents/perspective parents
  • Lessons from the Bennet Review: commonly found features of the most successful schools
  • The importance of creating the right culture
  • Embedding a whole school approach

The event:

The three sessions will focus on: 1. policy developments; 2. evidencing performance to both inspectors & parents; & 3. what schools can learn from individual case study examples of success.

Morning refreshments will be served upon arrival with a networking lunch to follow. Any special needs or dietary requirements should be notified to us upon booking.
