On 16th January 2019, the DfE launched a consultation on proposals on how Ofsted inspects schools to take effect from September 2019. The new framework proposes to rebalance inspections to ensure children are receiving a rich and broad curriculum at every stage of their education from early years to higher education.
- revised framework to focus inspections 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’
- introduction of a new behaviour judgement to give parents reassurance that behaviour is good
