Update on the latest Ofsted Inspections
RESOLVED: That the report be noted.
62.1 The Head of Education Standards & Achievement and the Head of Early Years and Strategic Lead for Whole Family Working provided an update on the latest Ofsted inspections for schools in the City.
62.2 The Head of Education Standards & Achievement advised the Committee that the normal inspection regime was still suspended by Ofsted. However last term interim visits did take place at four schools: St Bartholomew’s CE Primary, Hertford Infant, Moulsecoomb Primary School and St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School.These were visits which commented on children’s return to schools but made no judgement. Three of those reports had been published and the final one, for Hertford Infant, would be published in due course. Ofsted announced in December that this term they would start monitoring visits for ‘Requires Improvement’ and ‘Inadequate’ schools and had issued guidance on how those visits would take place. The Head of Early Years and Strategic Lead for Whole Family Working added that it was similar for Early Years inspections in that they hadn’t taken place, but there had been one interim visit to the Nest Nursery School, which had previously been graded as ‘Requires Improvement’ and they found that all identified actions had been met. The Council were waiting for further information from Ofsted on when and how inspections could recommence.
62.3 RESOLVED: That the report be noted.
