Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector, Amanda Spielman announced details of planned changes to the way Ofsted inspects schools, colleges, further education institutions 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.
Speaking to school leaders at the annual SCHOOLS NorthEast summit in Newcastle, Ms Spielman said that these changes will be designed to allow teachers and leaders to focus more of their time on the real substance of education.
Fact or Myth?
So does this mean OFSTED will be looking at your Activity Passport offer? Or will this be another of those pesky OFSTED myths?
