Ofsted

From 1st September 2019, Ofsted has put in place a new framework, which inspectors will be using in their work of inspecting early years settings, schools, FE and skills providers and independent schools. The education inspection framework will replace the common inspection framework – so please find below updated handbooks, links and information.

There are also new guides for school leaders on what to expect from an inspection, and how best to prepare. For all information on Ofsted please visit their website Ofsted.gov.uk
