Event description
Reduce the stress associated with school inspection, through excellent leadership practice

About this event

This online course will enable school leaders to manage and reduce the stress associated with school inspection, through excellent leadership practice, embedding school improvement into the annual quality cycle and taking account of best practice. The course will include the latest updates on Ofsted inspections 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.

There will be a focus on curriculum, deep dives and pastoral care, sharing strategies on how to present your evidence in a succinct and accessible format.

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 effectively to parents, staff and governors.


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 
  • Discuss and develop your curriculum and pastoral care plan and strategies
  • Prepare staff for the deep dive process and conversation
  • 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


You will be taken through each aspect of the inspection framework in order to:

  • Consider each element 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 
  • Work through the questions inspectors will ask middle leaders during the deep dive and to governors during their meeting with inspectors
  • Reflect on the current levels of effectiveness in your own school 
  • Identify where practice is already working well, or might be improved and developed
  • Be given the opportunity to plan how your school will prepare the practicalities following the phone call and prepare pupils, staff and governors
