A very simple summary of the new Education Inspection Framework
Figuring out what’s going on with SEF usually means reading an awful lot of long boring documents, so we thought we’d be nice and break it down for you with this handy infographic. (There's also a printable version).
One Day Notice
Ofsted will call to announce an inspection between 10.30am and 2pm the day before they arrive, but headteachers will receive an additional 90-minute phonecall with the lead inspector the same afternoon.
2 DAY INSPECTIONS FOR ALL SCHOOLS
‘Good’ schools will no longer receive one-day inspections, they’ll get the same two-day inspection as everybody else.
Only small schools (150 pupils or less) will receive one-day inspections.
External Data Only
Ofsted will only take external data into account – meaning any internal data you’ve recorded won’t be seen or judged.
They will, however, look at data in relation to your workload.
If excess hours are being spent putting data into trackers, that’s going to be a problem...
