About the Webinar

This webinar will provide school governors, senior leaders, headteachers and curriculum leads with an understanding of Ofsted’s inspection approach to evaluating ‘protected characteristics’ and how schools can meet their curriculum requirements.

On the 17th September, Ofsted published their ‘Inspecting teaching of the protected characteristics in schools’ guidance. Ofsted will gather evidence on how schools promote equality and diversity and assess pupils’ understanding of the protected characteristics as defined under the Equality Act 2010.

Where an inspection identifies that a school is not teaching about all the protected characteristics, it will always report on this. Schools that don't teach about LGBT relationships for instance, could get a 'requires improvement' judgement on leadership.

In this webinar, Adrian Guy, a school improvement consultant with over 20+ years' experience, and RSHE subject matter expert, John Rees will explore why and how Ofsted will look to gather evidence in relation to how schools teach about the protected characteristics. It will also cover what judgement criteria Ofsted will use and how schools can implement learning as part of their curriculum expectations.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding the three main judgement areas that Ofsted will use when evaluating how schools promote equality and pupils’ understanding of the protected characteristics.

  • Recognising what approaches schools can take to teach children about protected characteristics in an age-appropriate way.

  • Understanding how teaching about protected characteristics and promoting equality and diversity form part of Ofsted personal development criteria.

  • Identifying what schools must look to implement as part of the DfE RSHE statutory guidance and ensuring they are complying with Ofsted requirements and timescales.

  • Recognising how schools can ensure that their curriculum is inclusive, sensitive to different needs and is clearly communicated to parents.
