Please note that the Ofsted handbook has been updated. The changes will take effect from 30th October 2017.
The changes are:
- Changes to the Outcomes for pupils section reflecting changes to GCSE grades and data reports (a new IDSR);
- updates to Clarification for schools section and mythbuster document around myths and misunderstandings;
- clarification of arrangements for meeting relevant members of the governance structure and inclusion of chief executives or equivalents in inspections of academies in multi-academy trusts;
- and new content explaining what happens to schools that receive the ‘requires improvement’ and ‘inadequate’ judgements.
The updated handbook can be found here.
