A round up of the most valued advice we have issued to members so far this year
This update includes minor changes to make the complaints process clear.
The Department for Education (DfE) is applying 16 to 18 minimum standards to the performance of schools and colleges in the 2015 to 2016 academic year.
Ofsted published a School Inspection Update providing guidance for its inspectors on 24 November 2016. The update contains a number of useful items for members.
If you’re undertaking service provision work outside of your school, find out whether you’re eligible for additional payments and aim to be clear about the wider financial arrangements.
The common inspection framework introduces significant changes to the inspection process. These changes will be relevant to all education establishments, including settings on the early years register, maintained schools and academies, non-association independent schools, and further education skills providers.
In March 2015, Ofsted published updated guidance on the marking practices it expects to see when carrying out inspections in schools.
There have been a number of changes (effective from January 2015) to Ofsted’s guidance documents for conducting section five inspections.
The Ofsted consultation ‘Better inspection for all’ sets out Ofsted’s vision for a new framework from 2015 and asks open questions about future inspection methodologies. It’s vital that as many middle leaders as possible complete and submit a response to let Ofsted know just how much you care about the health of our school system.
This advice describes how this move may impact upon the roles of teachers who are working in state maintained schools
