This course aims to increase Governor confidence in answering the Ofsted frequently asked questions, identifying where and how to find the answers and familiarisation with the latest Ofsted Governance requirements.
This course will consider the following questions; How confident are you about Ofsted? Do you know the core functions of a Governing Board? We will look at how Governor self-reviews can help to prepare a Governing Board for Ofsted and what inspectors could ask Governors about the performance management of the school. Governors will leave the session with a list of key information and questions to find out from their school to support with their preparation.
This course will enable you to:
- Understand the current Ofsted Common Inspection Framework; particularly the short inspections and the latest requirements on Governance.
- Feel confident in answering Ofsted frequently asked questions - particularly with regards to funamental British values or Pupil Premium funding.
- Feel confident in knowing what questions need to be asked to find the answers from the school.
Suitable for all Governors whether at primary, secondary or special schools.
