Regional Challenge - Do the Maths! In 2011/12, London had just under 1.1 million children in its education system. This figure is set to grow year on year to approximately 1.25 million by 2016/17. Pupil numbers are grower at a faster rate in London than anywhere else in the country. Schools need to be expanded and new schools need to be built to respond to this ever increasing demand for a school place. Although the pressure is currently at its strongest within primary schools, this pressure will, undoubtedly, feed through into secondary school provision over time. Based upon current projections, London boroughs are facing a shortage of 133,000 primary and secondary school places up until 2017/18. London Councils report on schools places http://www.londoncouncils.gov.uk/news/current/pressdetail.htm?pk=1606
Mapping your service against Ofsted Criteria The 2012 Ofsted Inspection Framework states “Inspectors are required to report on the quality of education provided in the school and must, in particular, cover the following four areas: 1. the achievement of pupils at the school 2. the quality of teaching in the school 3. the quality of leadership in and management of the school 4. the behaviour and safety of pupils at the school. In reporting, inspectors must also consider: the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils at the school the extent to which the education provided by the school meets the needs of the range of pupils at the school, and in particular the needs of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs.”
Mapping Your Services 1.Achievement of the pupils at the school 2.Quality of teaching in the school 3.Behaviour and safety of pupils at the school 4.Quality of leadership in, and management of, the school
New Proposals (Consultation) A common inspection framework for all early years settings on the Early Years Register, maintained schools and academies, non-association independent schools and FE and skills providers, this framework will mean that the same judgements will apply in each of these remits Introducing short inspections for maintained schools, academies and FE and skills providers that were judged good at their previous inspection. These short inspections, conducted approximately every three years, will report on whether or not a provider has maintained its overall effectiveness but will not provide a full set of graded judgements Conducting a full inspection of non-association independent schools within three-year period.
There will be greater emphasis on … safeguarding the suitability of the curriculum and the type and range of courses and opportunities offered by providers preparation for life and work in Britain today, including in relation to personal development, behaviour and welfare.
Graded Inspections on …. Effectiveness of leadership and management Quality of teaching, learning and assessment Personal development, behaviour and welfare Outcomes for children and learners. Grade 1: outstanding; Grade 2: good; Grade 3: requires improvement; Grade 4: inadequate.
