New Ofsted Inspection Framework (to take effect from September 2019)

Consultation on the new Ofsted Framework (to take effect from September 2019)

Please note that the consultation on the new Ofsted Framework (to take effect from September 2019) has been launched and closes on 5th April 2019.

The consultation document, online survey, and draft handbooks can be accessed at www.gov.uk/ofsted , as well as a research overview commentary and school inspection update.

Summary:

  • revised framework to focus inspection on what children learn through the curriculum, rather than over-reliance on performance data 
  • proposals will call time on the culture of ‘teaching to the test’ and off-rolling 
  • new separate behaviour judgement to give parents reassurance that behaviour is good 
  • most evidence-based, research-informed and tested framework in Ofsted’s 26-year history
