HMCI, recently announced details of planned changes to the way Ofsted inspects schools and early years settings from September 2019. 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 autumn’s update session is intended as the first of three parts to help you plan for these changes. November 14th is a phase specific half-day session looking in detail at the methodology which inspectors are being prepared for. This will be followed by a second session in the Spring Term to look at how Ofsted is progressing with its planned changes and using some good practice examples from North Yorkshire schools in curriculum planning and evaluating how pupils are progressing. The final session in the summer will draw this year’s updates together by reviewing the latest developments from Ofsted and sharing developing good practice.
Schools will have a better understanding of the changed focus of Ofsted inspections.
Customers will be provided with tea/coffee on arrival and mid-morning. We recommend that you book your place on this event as soon as possible to ensure a place is available, and so that suitable resources and any special dietary requirements can be provided for you. We know that if you have booked onto an event you will usually have arranged cover and be looking forward to the day. However, if circumstances change and you find you will be unable to attend a session you are booked onto please cancel via www.nyeducationservices.co.uk as soon as possible. You will not be expected to incur the course fee if Ofsted are inspecting your school on the date of the event. However, if a place is cancelled for any other reason schools will be charged the full fee if a place is cancelled within 21 days of the event. Please be aware that some venues will not be able to honour requests for special requirements (e.g. dietary) if you have not booked a place more than 10 days before an event/network.
