Changes to the Common
Ofsted have now released details of the changes to inspections from September 2015. As you will be aware the changes follow the Ofsted consultation ‘Better inspection for all’, and will affect early years provision, schools, further education and skills. The three key areas to be aware of include:
- Common Inspection Framework - the introduction of a common inspection framework for all early years settings on the Early Years Register, maintained schools and academies, non-association independent schools and further education and skills providers
- Short Inspections - these will apply to maintained schools, academies and further education and skills providers that were judged good at their last full inspection. These short inspections will be conducted approximately every 3 years
- Changes to Ofsted’s Inspection Workforce - from September 2015 Ofsted will contract directly with inspectors for maintained schools, academies, non-association independent schools, and further education and skills inspections
