From September 2019, Ofsted will refocus inspections of schools to make sure that learners are receiving a high-quality education that puts them on a path to future success.

With less time spent looking at exam results and test data, and more time considering how a school has achieved their results and whether they are the outcome of a broad, rich curriculum and real learning, schools must get to grips with the new judgement areas fairly quickly to ensure they're meeting the new handbook criteria.

Westminster Insight's Implementing the New Ofsted Education Inspection Framework conference, on Tuesday 26 November 2019 in London, is an exclusive case-study led event that will provide greater clarification on what the new education inspection framework means in practice and how the planned changes are affecting the way Ofsted inspects schools.

You will hear first-hand from primary, secondary and special school headteachers and multi-academy trust CEOs on how they have interpreted the new framework and are currently delivering, and intend to deliver further, by delving deep into each judgement area.

Targeting all school headteachers, deputy heads, members of the leadership team, chairs of governors and heads of curriculum, this unique event will not only provide you with lots of support and guidance on how to navigate the new Ofsted framework, but more importantly, it will bring you plenty of real life examples to enable you to apply the framework to your own school context and cohort.
