About the Webinar

This webinar will help subject leads, school leaders and governors to understand what to expect from an Ofsted ‘deep dive’ and how schools can best prepare themselves.

The new Ofsted ‘Inspecting the curriculum’ guidance states that as part of a ‘deep dive’ Ofsted inspectors will:

  • Gather evidence on the curriculum intent, implementation and impact over a sample of subjects, topics or aspects in collaboration with leaders, teachers and pupils.
  • Use a ‘deep dive’ to seek to interrogate and establish a coherent evidence base on quality of education.
  • Sample other areas of education within the school to probe questions that have emerged as a result of the deep-dive work

With the new Ofsted Education Inspection Framework (EIF) now firmly in place, Maggie Parker, a practising inspector, looks at the key questions around ‘deep dives’ and the responsibilities which fall on subject and senior leaders.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding the role of subject leads and school leaders around deep dives under the EIF

  • How deep dives are shaped, their purpose and what inspectors are looking for

  • Significant questions that inspectors may focus on during a deep dive

  • How Ofsted judges curriculums and key features according to Ofsted guidance

  • Assessing your school’s wider curriculum and evaluating current teaching and learning
