Summer Conference 2016 > Lesley Cox
How Ofsted evaluates outstanding practice
My presentation will be: ‘ How Ofsted evaluates outstanding practice’. It will include how inspectors judge the effectiveness of outcomes, teaching, learning and assessment, personal development, behaviour and welfare and leadership and management. It will include the changes contained within the common inspection framework and explain about the new short inspections of good/outstanding schools.
