    Getting your ducks in a row…being Ofsted ready (webinar) – 21 September 2023

    by Hannah Richardson -

    These webinars are aimed at those secondary schools that are in the Ofsted window during 2023/2024. Participants will be secondary headteachers accompanied by their chairs of governors.

    The online session will include some general reminders about the changes Ofsted have made to the inspection process, including the lived difference between a graded and ungraded inspection. The session will refer to recent school experiences, weave through ongoing changes and adjustments to the framework and provide a practical approach to ensure school leaders remain confident throughout their inspection.

    The webinar will also touch on some of the following aspects of a live inspection:

    • Pre-inspection documentation including the IDSR 
    • The phone call with the lead inspector to set the scene 
    • Supporting the middle leaders to give a good account of their work 
    • Managing the typical inspection timetable 
    • What to do when it feels as if things are going awry 
    • FAQs.

    The webinars will be led by a member of the HIAS Secondary Team and will invite input from some headteachers who have recently experienced inspection.

    Autumn 23-24 Ofsted briefing - Education Inspection Framework 2019 – 25 September 2023

    by Hannah Richardson -

    These termly briefings aim to deepen the knowledge and understanding of Headteachers and Chair of Governors in respect of the current Ofsted inspection framework. The sessions are particularly targeted at schools who are likely to be inspected by the end of the summer term 2024.

    There will be opportunities to review information relating to the latest national and local inspection trends and patterns and consider implications for their own school. Additional input will be provided by headteachers of schools that have been recently inspected under the current framework (2019) and members of the Primary Phase Inspector team who support schools through the process.  

    A senior leader and Chairs of Governors are invited to attend but do not need to book a place. Headteachers who have booked a place will receive the course details, which they should share.

    The course price entitles a school to three places at the briefing (the Headteacher, Senior Leader and Chair of Governors).
