A shared commitment by school staff to helping pupils succeed – and robust monitoring of pupils’ academic, personal and social progress – are among the keys to reengaging pupils who have become uninterested or de-motivated, according to the latest survey from Ofsted.
Ofsted’s vision is to raise standards and improve lives. This consultation seeks views on proposals for assessing children’s services and Ofsted’s inspection of services for children in care and safeguarding as part of the new Comprehensive Area Assessment (CAA).
On 1 September 2008, tens of thousands of childcare providers moved to new registers: the Early Years and Childcare Registers. With a new, single framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) also being introduced, there’s a lot happening in the sector. Visit the EYFS page on the link below to find out more.
We inspect and regulate to achieve excellence in the care of children and young people, and in education and skills for learners of all ages.
The new Ofsted brings together the wide experience of four inspectorates to make a greater difference for every child, and for all young people and adult learners, in England. Their educational, economic and social well-being will promote our success as a country.
Early Years: Leading to Excellence
Ofsted's latest report on early years and childcare focuses on leadership and management.
