Description

Reducing the stress and workload associated with Ofsted inspections: an update on changes for 2018/19

'What we want to see on inspection is an accurate reflection of what happens in your school. Yes, we want to see how you approach assessment. We want to see good teaching. We absolutely want to be sure that your leadership is effective. But we want to see all of that just as you approach it day-to-day, not as a special presentation for Ofsted.’

Amanda Spielman, March 2018

This course will enable school leaders to manage and reduce the stress associated with school inspection, through good leadership practice and taking account of best practice. The course will include an update on Ofsted’s autumn term revisions to the inspection framework, allowing you the opportunity to examine each aspect of inspection in relation to your own school. In doing so, you will be able to learn how to improve all aspects of school leadership and ensure that the education your pupils receive is the best experience possible.

You will learn how to integrate best practice models into every aspect of school leadership. You will have the opportunity to examine the suitability of your self-evaluation and action planning to communicate your school efficiency to staff and governors. There will be a focus on pupil outcomes and how to present your evidence in a succinct and accessible format.

The course will help you to use the framework to bring about school improvement by:

  • Understanding what Ofsted does not want you to do, enabling you to reduce stress and workload for yourself and your staff

  • Interpreting the inspection framework and handbook in order to embrace good practice and support you to bring about school improvement

  • ensuring that your self-evaluation is accurate

  • understanding how strategic planning can be successful

  • developing clear and measurable success criteria for improvement

  • ensuring that all staff and governors are well prepared and understand what to expect during an inspection

Objectives of this course

  • be taken through each aspect of the inspection framework

  • consider the new elements and changes of emphasis of the framework, in order to fully embrace best practice

  • look closely at the evidence required to make each judgement, the criteria for making the judgements and best practice models

  • consider how best to present your evidence clearly and succinctly

  • reflect on the current levels of effectiveness in your own school

  • identify where practice is already working well, or might be improved and developed, this will include exploring the DfE's Strategic School Improvement Fund and understanding who it is for, what it can be used for and how to apply

  • be given the opportunity to plan how your school will prepare the practicalities following “the phone call”
