In this section of the website, we hope you will share your experiences of any Ofsted inspections you have had recently – or if you just want to celebrate how well you have done, that is just as good!

Ofsted continues to be a big concern despite all the improvements we strive to make and if we can learn from each other and ‘steal the wheel’ rather than ‘reinvent’ then that has got to be worthwhile.

There is also a Documents and Links section where you can find links to some of the guidance and forms from the OFSTED website.

...  and also any OFSTED related information that we think is of interest.

So its over to you ……

Current Updates

Notes on the latest meeting between Charlie Henry and representatives of NAHHT, NAHSL and PRUs org can be accessed here.

New framework for school inspections for September 2013 can be accessed here.

More useful to our settings is the subsidiary guidance which can be accessed here.
Pages 37-39 are of particular use.

There are also new section 5 briefing papers for inspectors which include one for Pupils With Medical Needs.
The document can be downloaded here, or you can visit the OFSTED website:

Please note Charlie said that they would not ask schools directly about pupils with medical needs unless it had been raised in a parent/carer response. It is a useful document to take to school to remind them of their responsibilities however!
You can access this here.
