SSAT Ofsted: the essential support guide for schools

An excerpt from the previous edition of the Guide.

Ofsted: enabling self-supported school improvement

A comprehensive guide to the latest Ofsted inspection framework, with contributions from outstanding schools. The guide is designed to support your overall school improvement planning – regardless of the last overall effectiveness grade your school achieved – and gives comprehensive guidance on what you can expect from and prepare for both the new one and two-day inspections. The guide includes:

  • Full guidance on the latest inspection criteria and processes in a user-friendly format
  • How Ofsted reaches a judgement in each aspect
  • Processes – what schools can expect and when, including how to be prepared for meetings and what documentation is needed at each stage
  • Top tips from recently-inspected schools
  • Exemplar documentation from leading schools
  • Additional guidance on SMSC and British values
  • A checklist of what schools may need to have in place for one and two-day inspections
  • Details of what stakeholders might be asked.

I can genuinely say it is one of the most useful resources I have bought in a long time – well worth all of the minimal investment!
