  1. 1. Education inspection framework: Inspecting the substance of education Education inspection framework Slide 1 Emma Knights, NGA Matthew Purves, Ofsted
  2. 2. Education inspection framework Slide 2 Inspection experience 27 years of inspecting education Most research-informed framework Research shared publicly Largest ever number of pilot inspections More than 250 pilot inspections Sharing draft inspection handbooks First time we’ve consulted on the handbooks Consultation Ofsted’s biggest ever consultation Development
  3. 3. Education inspection framework Slide 3 The consultation responses More than 15,000 responses  Almost 11,000 responses to online questionnaire  Over 600 email responses  Over 4,000 responses as a result of campaigns  Over 150 face to face engagement events  Over 400 people joined external webinars 16 January - 5 April 2019
  4. 4. The EIF: the case for change Currently, the accountability system can divert schools from the real substance of education. What young people learn is too often coming second to delivering performance data. Teaching to the test and a narrow curriculum have the greatest negative effect on the most disadvantaged and the least able children. The EIF puts the curriculum at the heart of the new framework, putting the focus on the substance of education. Education inspection framework Slide 4
  5. 5. Ofsted strategy 2017–22  The curriculum at the heart of inspection.  No need to produce progress and attainment data ‘for Ofsted’, helping reduce unnecessary workload.  All pupils should have access to a high-quality education – challenging gaming and ‘off- rolling’. Education inspection framework Slide 5 ‘A force for improvement through intelligent, responsible and focused inspection and regulation’ The new framework Our focus
  6. 6. Education inspection framework Slide 6 Quality of education Personal development Leadership and management Behaviour and attitudes Overall effectiveness EIF 2019 – proposed inspection judgements 75% of the public and sector agreed or strongly agreed 78% of the public & sector agreed or strongly agreed
  7. 7. Slide 7  Increasing the length of section 8 inspections from one day to two days for most schools  Schools with a 150 or fewer pupils on roll will continue to receive a one day inspection  The two day inspection will apply to all special schools and pupil referral units. Education inspection framework Most inspections will last 2 days
  8. 8. Education inspection framework Slide 8 Inspectors will not look at non- statutory progress and attainment data Inspectors will ask what leaders understand about progress and attainment in the school, and will then say ‘let’s see that first-hand, together’ Inspectors will consider the actions taken by schools in response to their understanding of progress and attainment, and the impact of these actions. ‘Inspectors will not look at non-statutory internal progress and attainment data’
  9. 9. Slide 9 Safeguarding children is at the heart of inspection Safeguarding within our inspections is built around three core areas:  Identify: are leaders and other staff identifying the right children and how do they do that?  Help: what timely action do staff within the provider take and how well do they work with other agencies?  Manage: how do responsible bodies and staff manage their statutory responsibilities and in particular, how do they respond to allegations about staff and other adults? Leadershipand Management Education inspection framework
  10. 10. The 3 core functions of those responsible for governance:  ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction  holding leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff  overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent. Governance handbook, DfE, January 2017 Education inspection framework Slide 10
  11. 11. Governance and inspection Inspectors will ensure that meetings are with those who are directly responsible for exercising governance of the school and for overseeing its performance. As with the meetings between inspectors and pupils, parents and staff, meetings with those responsible for governance should take place without the headteacher or senior staff. The contribution of governors to the school’s performance is evaluated as part of the judgement on the effectiveness of leadership and management. Education inspection framework Slide 11
  12. 12. When we inspect schools that are part of MATs, sometimes clarity is lost between MAT governance and local functions:  The place of local governing bodies is often confused.  Schemes of delegation are not always as clear as they need to be.  MAT leadership and management comes from the executive team; oversight and governance comes from trustees and members. Inspectors will pay particular attention to understanding your MAT’s arrangements. Education inspection framework Slide 12 Governance and inspection - MATs
  13. 13. 13  Curriculum design, coverage, appropriateness and delivery  Teaching (pedagogy)  Assessment (formative and summative)  Attainment and progress (including national tests and assessments)  Reading  Readiness for the next stage of education Quality of education judgement The new quality of education judgement puts the real substance of education, the curriculum, at the heart of inspection. Inspectors will have a connected, educationally-focused conversation, incorporating: Education inspection framework
  14. 14. Thank you for the consultation you undertook Hot of the press figures from our 2019 Annual Governance Survey Do you support the proposed new Ofsted inspection framework? 89% of 4,063 respondents to that question answered yes From our 2018 Annual Governance Survey 78% of respondents felt our most recent Ofsted report(s) gave a fair and accurate picture of the school(s) HMCI at NGA’s summer conference: www.gov.uk/government/speeches/national-governance-association-speech
  15. 15. The core functions of school governance In all types of schools, governing boards (GBs) have four core functions: 1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; 2. Holding the executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and performance of staff; 3. Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent 4. Ensuring decisions take into account the views and experiences of stakeholders (pupils, parents, staff and the community)
  16. 16. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction What are the school’s values and vision? Where are we now? How do we get there?: strategic priorities How do we know if we are getting there? Do we measure what we value? bit.ly/BeingStrategicNGA Questions: how will inspectors begin a conversation with governors/trustees about the 1st core function? Will we begin to see inspection reports which cover this key aspect of governance?
  17. 17. Holding the executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and performance of staff Questions:  how will inspectors begin a conversation with governors/ trustees about the 2nd core function?  what will inspectors expect governing boards to be seeing both in reports from senior leaders but also from other sources?  We know inspectors won’t want to see internal progress data, but there is some concern they may dictate to governing boards what they should and shouldn’t be requesting in order to carry out their work
  18. 18. Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent Questions:  how will inspectors judge this 3rd core function?  inspectors do not tend to be financial experts; how will they be equipped to do this?
  19. 19. Use of the pupil premium Inspectors will gather evidence about the use of the pupil premium, particularly regarding: 1 The level of pupil premium funding received by the school in the current academic year and levels of funding received in previous academic years 2 How leaders and governors have spent the pupil premium, their rationale for this spending and its intended impact 3 The learning and progress of disadvantaged pupils, as shown by published outcomes data

  21. 21. Common questions (myths!) Education inspection framework Slide 21 What if I’m in the process of changing my school’s curriculum? There will be a transitional period. We will review the position after a year. Is there an ‘Ofsted curriculum’? No. We support curriculum flexibility. Different schools taking radically different approaches to the curriculum will be judged fairly. Should I get advice from a consultant or buy in specific products? No! There is nothing mysterious here. The quality of education is about schools and trusts thinking about the curriculum carefully for themselves.
