1 Consultation on the new arrangements All schools will have been inspected under section 5 by August 2009 and Ofsted are developing new arrangements A formal consultation period on the proposals for new arrangements began on 19 th May The consultation paper are on the internet A proportion of inspections in 08/09 will be pilot inspections All schools will have been inspected under section 5 by August 2009 and Ofsted are developing new arrangements A formal consultation period on the proposals for new arrangements began on 19 th May The consultation paper are on the internet A proportion of inspections in 08/09 will be pilot inspections

2 Ofsted Pilot The main objective is to reduce inadequate provision Greater impact on weaker schools To gather a more detailed response from Key users: parents, pupils, all staff, partnerships To put resources where they are needed The main objective is to reduce inadequate provision Greater impact on weaker schools To gather a more detailed response from Key users: parents, pupils, all staff, partnerships To put resources where they are needed

3 Ofsted will place an increased focus on standards and progress An increased focus on the standards reached and progress made by different groups of pupils, including the most vulnerable and the most able: FSM, G&T, BME, LAC More time will be spent in classrooms: the quality of learning and the quality of teaching will feature strongly Indicators that measure a school’s contribution to pupil well being - ECM An increased focus on the standards reached and progress made by different groups of pupils, including the most vulnerable and the most able: FSM, G&T, BME, LAC More time will be spent in classrooms: the quality of learning and the quality of teaching will feature strongly Indicators that measure a school’s contribution to pupil well being - ECM

4 Ofsted will give an increased focus to pupils’ well-being The Children’s Plan published by the DCSF sets out the intention to develop strong school level indicators that taken together measure a school’s contribution to pupil well-being Ofsted are considering how to approach this; no firm decisions have yet been made The Children’s Plan published by the DCSF sets out the intention to develop strong school level indicators that taken together measure a school’s contribution to pupil well-being Ofsted are considering how to approach this; no firm decisions have yet been made

5 How will we check that schools are not slipping back; the health check Schools judged to be outstanding or good will be inspected less frequently In order to check schools are not slipping back and to provide parents with more up-to-date information, these schools will have one ‘health check’ (Risk Assessment) report published in the intervening period The health check/risk assessment will make use of a range of material including published data Schools judged to be outstanding or good will be inspected less frequently In order to check schools are not slipping back and to provide parents with more up-to-date information, these schools will have one ‘health check’ (Risk Assessment) report published in the intervening period The health check/risk assessment will make use of a range of material including published data

6 Final Document Will possibly report back in a different way e.g. a letter to parents? -within a structure e.g. comments on overall effectiveness, how good a school is in a particular respect and why, comments on the quality of learning Ofsted suggest making criteria for outstanding, good, satisfactory and inadequate more explicit and give schools a clearer idea about what they need to do to improve Inspectors may report more explicitly whether schools provide good value for money Will possibly report back in a different way e.g. a letter to parents? -within a structure e.g. comments on overall effectiveness, how good a school is in a particular respect and why, comments on the quality of learning Ofsted suggest making criteria for outstanding, good, satisfactory and inadequate more explicit and give schools a clearer idea about what they need to do to improve Inspectors may report more explicitly whether schools provide good value for money

7 SEF To have more significant section on governors and the challenger and rigour they are providing for the school New sections – community cohesion To have more significant section on governors and the challenger and rigour they are providing for the school New sections – community cohesion

8 The following were tried out in the Pilot: PIB completed in school with the Head The Head part of the team and wrote part of the report Focus on healthiness in the school Focus on do pupils feel safe? Focus on demonstrable outcomes “this is a satisfactory school in order to be outstanding the school must……? Use of questionnaires for pupils and staff PIB completed in school with the Head The Head part of the team and wrote part of the report Focus on healthiness in the school Focus on do pupils feel safe?

9 The Pilot Inspection included: Discussions with different focus groups – SEN pupils: BME, FSM, G & T Lesson observations – SEN, G&T, BME, FSM Emphasis on ECM Evening meeting with parents More account taken of the capacity of the school to improve than currently (It seems that Ofsted will monitor schools whose capacity is no better than satisfactory) Discussions with different focus groups – SEN pupils: BME, FSM, G & T Lesson observations – SEN, G&T, BME, FSM Emphasis on ECM Evening meeting with parents More account taken of the capacity of the school to improve than currently (It seems that Ofsted will monitor schools whose capacity is no better than satisfactory)

10 Ofsted will look at how well schools work in partnership The inspection of federations and partnerships will be co-ordinated Schools will be asked about their contribution to wider partnership working in relation to: -school improvement; implementation; hard to place pupils/those at risk of exclusion; extended services Some schools may have a specific focus inspected such as looked after children The inspection of federations and partnerships will be co-ordinated Schools will be asked about their contribution to wider partnership working in relation to: -school improvement; implementation; hard to place pupils/those at risk of exclusion; extended services Some schools may have a specific focus inspected such as looked after children

11 Ofsted suggested that ……. Headteachers are positive about 2 days’ notice of inspection Parents and pupils inform them that we should do more ‘no notice’ inspections It is possible they will trial unannounced inspections to see if they are feasible Headteachers are positive about 2 days’ notice of inspection Parents and pupils inform them that we should do more ‘no notice’ inspections It is possible they will trial unannounced inspections to see if they are feasible

12 The experience of the pilot suggests: Ofsted intend to have more impact on the weaker schools and to prevent those that are improving from going into decline Ofsted also intend to take more account of the views of parents in deciding when to inspect More account taken of the views of parents and pupils in deciding when a school needs to be inspected There will be greater focus on the ways in which schools have gathered and taken account of the views of users Ofsted considering national surveys and benchmarking, so that schools can compare their users’ views with similar schools Ofsted intend to have more impact on the weaker schools and to prevent those that are improving from going into decline Ofsted also intend to take more account of the views of parents in deciding when to inspect More account taken of the views of parents and pupils in deciding when a school needs to be inspected There will be greater focus on the ways in which schools have gathered and taken account of the views of users Ofsted considering national surveys and benchmarking, so that schools can compare their users’ views with similar schools

13 Risk Assessment Focus inspection activity where it can have the most impact: where a school is declining where a school is ‘satisfactory’ and not improving where a school is ‘inadequate’ With less frequent activity: where a school is good or outstanding, with no signs of decline …but how do Ofsted identify these schools?

14 Risk Assessment Use information and data available to Ofsted to indentify which schools to inspect, based on estimating: Current performance Potential to decline or improve Any specific issues e.g. safeguarding Covering all provision, all phases Use information and data available to Ofsted to indentify which schools to inspect, based on estimating: Current performance Potential to decline or improve Any specific issues e.g. safeguarding Covering all provision, all phases

15 Want to know… How effective is a school? What is the potential for improvement, or likelihood of decline? Are there any issues e.g. Safeguarding?

16 What it is….. It is about using data and information to identify where to focus inspection It isn’t about replacing an inspection, or inspector judgement It isn’t about pre-determining the results of an inspection It is about using information consistently, to ensure the same approach is taken across schools It isn’t about just using indicators that are in the school’s control, or that they should be accountable for It is about using any information as an indicator where we can prove it has been a good indicator of ‘risk’ in the past It is about using data and information to identify where to focus inspection It isn’t about replacing an inspection, or inspector judgement It isn’t about pre-determining the results of an inspection It is about using information consistently, to ensure the same approach is taken across schools It isn’t about just using indicators that are in the school’s control, or that they should be accountable for It is about using any information as an indicator where we can prove it has been a good indicator of ‘risk’ in the past

17 ‘Obvious’ possible indicators Standards data Progress data Last inspection judgement Attendance Parents’ views pupils’ views Complaints Standards data Progress data Last inspection judgement Attendance Parents’ views pupils’ views Complaints

18 ‘Less Obvious’ possible indicators Deprivation of area Other area indicators Self-evaluation Senior management team turnover Local authority information SIP report Deprivation of area Other area indicators Self-evaluation Senior management team turnover Local authority information SIP report
