Now Ofsted’s new inspection framework is published, we interviewed Deputy Director of Schools, Matthew Purves, about what leaders and teachers can actually expect when they’re inspected post-September. Our conversation covers ‘deep dives’, interviews with SLT and conversations with children. Matthew also offers insight into what Ofsted have learnt from the consultation and piloting of the framework. A must-listen for anyone in school, offering practical advice and reassurance.
