About the Webinar

Webinar Duration: 56 minutes (approx.)

Please note, this webinar has now been archived. The information contained in this webinar was correct at the time of publishing.

On the 6th July 2020, the DfE released their ‘Education plans from September 2020’ guidance detailing how Ofsted will be implementing their phased return to inspection.

The guidance provides details of how Ofsted will begin a series of interim visits from autumn 2020 with a view towards resuming full inspections in January 2021. Schools will be assessed on how well they are managing the return to full education for their pupils, including considering ‘blended learning’ (on-site/remote education) and safeguarding.

In this webinar, The National College will provide school governors, senior leaders, headteachers and department heads with practical advice and guidance on how they can prepare themselves for interim Ofsted visits and what measures they can put in place to ensure they are ready for full inspections again from January 2021.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding what Ofsted interim visits are, who will be involved and what will be asked of schools.

  • Recognising where school leaders should be focusing their efforts in line with Ofsted’s expectations that pupils resume learning the school’s extant curriculum.

  • Identifying how schools can ensure pupils are settling back into expected routines and behaviour and supporting pupils’ issues around mental health and wellbeing.

  • Building a culture of safeguarding around the latest DfE KCSiE guidance and developing child protection policies reflective of the current environment.

  • Understanding the steps that schools can take now and moving forward to ensure they are best placed to meet and exceed full Ofsted inspections in 2021.
