In 2002, Ofsted published a report on two of the three national training programmes for headteachers; the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) and the Leadership Programme for Serving Headteachers (LPSH). The report also included inspection findings on local education authority (LA) induction arrangements for newly appointed headteachers, including some elements which were funded by the third national programme; the Leadership and Management Programme for New Headteachers (Headlamp). This second report, which complements the earlier one, focuses specifically on the quality and effectiveness of Headlamp provision.

Information for Local Education Authorities and Early Years Childcare and Development Partnerships (EYDCPS) on regulating day care in maintained and independent schools
Ofsted regulates all childcare for children under the age of eight, except where such care is exempt from registration. Until 31 August 2003, all day care provided by maintained and independent schools as part of their activities is exempt from registration. However, from 1 September, an important change will take place. Any such day care provided directly by schools will no longer be exempt. Schools are required to apply to Ofsted for registration of any day care they provide, or intend to provide.

Comments by 26 March 2004 The context for the inspection of local authority youth services has changed significantly in the last year. Resourcing Excellent Youth Services, published by the Department for Education and Skills, sets out government specifications, targets and service indicators. Such factors, as well as the likely requirements of the Audit Commission’s comprehensive performance assessment (CPA), point to the need for a review of the current inspection framework.

The survey on which this report is based aimed to:
- examine the changes being made by schools to the curriculum in Key Stage 4 and the effects these have had on pupils’ achievement
- explore the use of programmes to motivate those young people who have lost interest in school and become disengaged from learning
- assess the quality of provision made outside school for young people who have absented themselves or have been excluded from school
- evaluate the links between schools, other providers and local authorities (LAs).

In 1999, secondary schools were given two years’ notice that, from September 2002, citizenship would become a statutory subject. In the autumn term of 2002 and the spring term of 2003, Her Majesty’s Inspectors (HMI) visited 25 schools to evaluate provision of citizenship as a statutory National Curriculum subject. In over half of the 25 schools, the management of the introduction of citizenship has been unsatisfactory, mainly because the full implications of citizenship as a National Curriculum subject were not understood or, in a small number of schools, because they were not accepted.
