Clive Davies OBE of Focus Education has outlined what he thinks any school needs to consider in terms of school improvement, self-evaluation and preparation for when OFSTED inevitably return in this support pack, which includes a checklist for preparing for a successful inspection.
The full programme of graded school inspections has now resumed in schools and the Education Inspection Framework for schools (EIF) will maintain the 4 key judgements but with additional flexibility in recognition of the last 18 months in schools.
The EIF has been updated to reflect the COVID-19 context that schools find themselves in and the disruption it has caused to all education providers when making judgements.
With all school improvement planning, schools should always do it for their own school and their own improvement journey - don’t do it just for Ofsted.
