New Ofsted framework

The new Ofsted framework puts the curriculum centre stage of Ofsted inspections. The National Education Union (NEU) thinks that the new framework has been badly prepared, with poor research, inadequate internal scrutiny and an unrealistic timetable for implementation. 

The NEU has produced new guidance on Ofsted that we think will help members and leaders dealing with inspections in their schools.

Members should share the guidance with their heads and suggest that this issue be discussed in staff meetings. If you are a school leader, in a school where teachers have cross-school subject responsibilities without TLRs or non-contact time, please see the school leaders' guidance

If you would like to share your experience of the new framework with Ofsted, please contact us using the Ofsted framework feedback form. We are particularly interested in how the new framework is impacting on your workload, especially if you have whole school subject responsibilities.
