Ofsted Publishes New Education Inspection framework with 'Personal Development Judgement

Ofsted has published its new education inspection framework which will take effect from September 2019.

It says inspectors will spend less time looking at exam results and test data, and more time considering how a nursery, school, college or other education provider has achieved their results. That is, whether they are the outcome of a broad, rich curriculum and real learning, or of teaching to the test and exam cramming.

It will also introduce two new key judgements, evaluating learners' 'behaviour and attitudes' separately from their 'personal development'.

The 'personal development' judgement will recognise the work early years providers, schools and colleges do to build young people's resilience and confidence in later life, including through participation in sport, music and extra-curricular activities.
