New Article: Ofsted Inspection Framework

Recommended Posts

Thank you for this. As we were inspected last week and awaiting report I am unable to make an informed comment in the new process. All I can say is they certainly tracked two children and then wished to see supporting evidence of progress made, or any intervention implemented to aide best outcomes. I am all for Ofsted coming unannounced but twice in less than a year, is too much. Just to say we only had the second one due to a new re-registration. Good luck to everybody due a visit soon. Although I gather everyone is back in the pot so the 3/4 year rule may not apply.

This may sound a daft question.... But the ofsted information that you have kindly posted, is that just for per schools etc or will FS classes in a school undergo that ofsted format as well? I have been working on data all day so my mind is in another place so when I can across this I just had to ask! I have seen the ofsted outline etc for schools but there wasn't much detail about eyfs so I am now wondering if the format you have posted would be what they would judge reception classes on?! Sorry if this sounds a silly question!

This information is primarily for pre-schools, nurseries and childminders; it arose from recent training I attended. However, the EYFS is statutory for reception classes obviously so the content is relevant, but I'm afraid I don't have any information on the inspection framework for schools. Sorry :( Maybe a lovely reception teacher will come along and help us out here!

Schools are inspected under a different Act (Education Act 2005) to registered provision (Children's Act 2006 I think). Although they provide the EYFS, this is alongside the NC and they will be inspected against the Section 5 framework. All the judgements however are relevant to EYFS:

Achievement of pupils

Quality of teaching

Behaviour and safety of pupils

Quality of Leadership and management.

The overall effectiveness is judged from these 4 outcomes.

 

The inspectors will be looking at the delivery of the EYFS but against the Section 5 criteria, as they are not inspecting the schools delivery of 1 curriculum/framework but 2. The EYFS in a school is just part of it's overall responsibilty. The success or weakness of any one of upto 3 phases in a Primary school can cause an inadequate judgement as it is the overall efffectiveness of the school as a whole that matters, not just one particular phase.
