In September 2019 Ofsted’s new Inspection framework comes into effect – is your school ready?
According to Ofsted 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, Ofsted Framework 2019.
With 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.
