Ofsted: Self-Evaluation and Analysis of Evidence (Primary) – 11th March
Short-notice inspections with a sharper focus on the progress of vulnerable groups have brought new challenges to schools. How can schools maintain a permanent state of readiness and be sure they do themselves justice when the inspectors arrive? Experience shows that the right preparation and the right sort of presentation can make a significant difference to inspection outcomes. In addition, there have been important adjustments to how inspections are carried out. A notable change is that inspectors will take an even more broad view of the quality of teaching, dispensing with the grading of teaching in individual lessons. This keynote conference draws together inspection experts and those on the receiving end. The aim is to help participants develop a clear view about how to prepare for inspections in ways which are relatively painless and support school improvement.
