The new Ofsted 2019 Common Inspection Framework has been published and it recognises much of the ‘Making Data Work’ report from the Teacher Workload Advisory Group. The Framework’s new focus is first and foremost the curriculum, with judgements assessing ‘quality of education’.
Inspectors in schools ‘will not use schools’ internal performance data for current pupils as evidence during an inspection’. Inspectors will carry out deep dives, underpinned by the three I’s:
- intent – the knowledge and skills that pupil will gain
- implementation – the way that the curriculum selected by the school is taught and assessed in order to support pupils to build their knowledge and to apply that knowledge as skills
- impact – the outcomes that pupils achieve as a result of the education they have received
