Ofsted briefing on new inspection framework.

Ofsted briefing on new inspection framework.

Following a consultation, we will inspect using our new education inspection framework (EIF) from September 2019.

The new framework sets out how we will inspect:

  • state schools
  • further education and skills providers
  • non-association independent schools
  • registered early years settings

Changes to inspections

Inspection will focus on the real substance of education, the curriculum.

Inspectors will spend less time looking at test data, and more time looking at what is taught and how it is taught. They will consider how a nursery, school, college or other education provider achieves its results.

We want to make sure that good results flow from teaching a broad, rich curriculum and reflect real learning, not just intensive preparation for a test.

We will be grading schools and other providers on the areas that matter most to parents:

  • the quality of education
  • behaviour and attitudes
  • personal development
  • leadership and management
