Building upon the latest school inspection handbook, including feedback from pilot inspections, the course has been designed to ensure that participants understand the key changes to the new framework, with a particular focus on deep dives.

Detailed and in-depth discussion about the deep dive process which built my confidence.” Claire Taylor, Assistant Head, Bowling Park

The day will include:

  • Preparing for the 90 minutes phone call – have you got all the necessary information ready for this?
  • How senior leaders can influence and manage the process for the deep dive element of the inspection.
  • Ensuring and assuring a quality curriculum for each subject. Are your curriculum leaders ready to work alongside inspectors on the deep dive?
  • What to expect from visits to lessons, book scrutiny and pupil discussion.
  • What teachers will be expected to demonstrate in terms of the content and sequencing of learning within their subject.

Resources were of high quality. The expertise of the trainer enabled anecdotes to enliven issues raised.” Joanna Speak, Poplars Farm Primary
