INSET : Outstanding Teaching & Learning 2020

“Lots of new ideas to try out and great discussions ” #alwayslearning

Highcliffe School Learning & Teaching Steering Group ( via Twitter)


On 16th January 2019 Ofsted released their new draft inspection framework

Will your school achieve Outstanding in Quality of Education ?

The single biggest contributory factor to a pupil’s attainment and progress is the quality of teaching; this is even more marked for disadvantaged and vulnerable students (double the effect size) so the continued improvement of teaching and learning in schools must be our number one priority.

What does outstanding teaching and learning look like in 2019?

‘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’

Ofsted Press Release 2019
