Assessing curriculum; Ofsted’s new inspection framework

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:

Access to schools for education and training providers (the “Baker clause” requirement) – What schools are required to do and why they must do it.

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.
