23 April 2021 Ofsted announce changes to inspections for the Summer term

Ofsted has announced a number of changes to inspections for schools in the Summer term - it will carry out some lighter touch inspections, with a return to graded inspections in the Autumn term

The changes include

- Ofsted will look at how the curriculum has been adapted and prioritised from September 2020

- It will not use teacher assessed grades from 2020 or 2021, but will consider externally published data, whilst being mindful of the age of it

- Ofsted says that inspectors will seek to understand how leaders supported the community throughout the pandemic

- Inspectors will also look at how the school ensured the best possible attendance for those pupils eligible to attend in person

- The impact of the pandemic cannot be the sole factor in an inadequate judgement

- Ofsted will be 'sympathetic' on schools' progress in implementing relationships education

- If inspectors are prevented from speaking to pupils during an inspection, safeguarding will be judged as ineffective
