Clarification for schools of the things Ofsted will not do
Ofsted have published a document to confirm facts about the requirements of Ofsted and to dispel myths that can result in unnecessary workloads in schools. If you are worried about how much planning you will be doing over half term, perhaps this will help ease your holidays:
- Ofsted does not require schools to provide individual lesson plans to inspectors. Equally, Ofsted does not require schools to provide previous lesson plans.
- Ofsted does not specify how planning should be set out, the length of time it should take or the amount of detail it should contain. Inspectors are interested in the effectiveness of planning rather than the form it takes.
