Summer Conference 2016 > Phil Harrison

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.

What Our Members Say

We have thousands of satisfied members since we began in 1994

Rodney House School – Manchester

We feel the online training delivered by EQUALS have been WONDERFUL.  The relevance and depth of the sessions has been fantastic, Peter is a very knowledgeable man. Having training delivered online has enabled all our teachers to attend and have discussions after the event rather than one teacher attending and disseminating which can water down the content.
Thank you so much and keep them coming!
