Ofsted seeks your views on our proposals for changes to the education inspection framework from September 2019.
This consultation closes at
11:45pm on 5 April 2019
Amanda Spielman has announced the inspectorate’s plans to focus more on the quality of education at schools, rather than exam results.
What does this mean for schools? More change and uncertainty. To get a heads-up on the potential changes and their implications School leaders are encouraged to attend one of our upcoming INSET Ofsted courses at Bath Spa University in association with the institute for Education’s Network for Learning.
Remember this also affects Non-Association Independent Schools and Further Education!

Current inspection judgements

Alongside this consultation Ofsted have published the following materials:
the draft education inspection framework 2019
the draft inspection handbooks for early years, schools, non-association independent schools and further education and skills
a commentary setting out the research that has informed the development of the criteria in the framework
Your feedback will help Ofsted refine and improve their proposed approach. Ofsted will consider all responses carefully before finalising and publishing the framework in summer 2019.
