Ofsted have issued their new curriculum inspection framework. Its main features are outlined in this section.
“The [framework …] is intended to restore curriculum – largely ‘missing in action’ from inspection for more than a decade – to its proper place, as an important component of the quality of education.” Amanda Spielman
Ofsted have confirmed that their working definition of curriculum is:
Secondary schools and schools with secondary age pupils (excluding independent schools) are under a statutory obligation to publish a policy statement on the circumstances in which education and training providers are permitted to have access to pupils. This article sets out the school’s obligation and the risks of non-compliance.
Keep up-to-date on relevant developments in the sector. Surinder Kaur Dhillon, our specialist employment lawyer, together with colleagues from ACAS, will deliver the Employment law update session on case law specific to the sector and new developments which have practical impact on the day-to-day operation of schools.
Julie Moktadir, our immigration specialist, looks at the impact of Brexit for employers and what challenges there will be in the short- and longer-term. Julie will also discuss recent changes to Right to Work checks, and how to ensure compliance.
