Description

About the briefing

Ofsted's national director for education, Sean Harford, will give a briefing on the inspectorate's planned changes to how it judges schools.

He will also take part in a question and answer session for headteachers to put their comments and questions on the new inspection handbook, which is expected to come into force in September 2019.

Sean joined Ofsted in 2003 and was appointed to his current post in 2015, and now oversees Ofsted’s inspection policy for early years, maintained, independent and unregistered schools, and further education and skills.

Since joining Ofsted as one of Her Majesty's Inspectors in 2003 he has worked in the School Improvement Division, School Inspection Policy and he led on organisational restructuring in 2009. Prior to taking on his current role, Sean was the Regional Director for the East of England and National Director, Schools. He has led section 5 and section 8 inspections of schools in the primary and secondary phases, also specialising in the monitoring of schools in categories of concern. His particular area of subject expertise is in science.

Prior to joining Ofsted, Sean held teaching and senior leadership posts in maintained secondary schools. While teaching, he also had a role as the associate adviser for science for a local authority.

Who should attend?

The event is aimed at principals, headteachers, and school senior leadership teams. Unfortunately due to limited places the event is not open to the general public.
