With the return of Ofsted inspections and deep dives in schools, learn how to prepare and plan for your next inspection. Understanding the specific impact of COVID-19 on school communities and demonstrating the response of school’s leaders will become vital to successful inspections.

Join Westminster Insight’s Ofsted Inspections Digital Conference to learn from Outstanding Schools across England. You will review the disruption of COVID-19 on schools and the challenges posed for future inspections including implementing the curriculum, collecting, and monitoring data, and recovery plans.

Focusing on the four areas of the current education inspection framework, hear from leading primary and secondary schools on how to achieve an Ofsted Good or Outstanding on behaviour and attitudes, leadership and management, personal development, and quality of education. You will gain understanding on how to be confident on cultural capital, deliver a broad and balanced curriculum and how to prepare and plan for an inspection.

Explore the role of Ofsted inspections in building safer schools in response to the review on safeguarding policies launched in April this year. You will consider current safeguarding processes and how to ensure pupils can safely and freely share their experiences.
