About the Webinar

Webinar Duration: 45 minutes (approx).

This webinar will provide governors, senior leaders, headteachers and department heads with expert insight and guidance on the recent updates to the Ofsted Education Inspection Framework (EIF) and School Inspection Handbooks, reflecting the challenges posed by COVID-19.

On the 19th April 2021, Ofsted published updates to the EIF and handbooks for inspectors. The guidance outlines key changes to inspection practice, in particular how Ofsted will inspect schools during the remainder of the summer term in line with COVID-19 protocols before resuming a full inspection programme in autumn 2021.

In this webinar, The National College will explore what the recent changes to the guidance documents are, how Ofsted will form judgements reflective of the COVID-19 context and what preparations schools can look to put in place.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding how Ofsted are amending inspection practice to deliver an approach which takes into account COVID-19 circumstances and disruption.

  • Clarifying the adapted approach inspectors will take towards preparation and planning of inspections.

  • Recognising what Ofsted will aim to explore around areas such as curriculum implementation, remote education and safeguarding during the pandemic.

  • Understanding how Ofsted will consider inspection plans around schools’ provision towards vulnerable pupils and children with SEND.

  • Recognising what expectations Ofsted will have of school leadership, external data and personal development.
