Education Inspection Framework (EIF)
Ofsted says the EIF was amended to include greater emphasis on the needs of younger children.
It replaces its “quality of teaching, learning and assessment” with a new “quality of education” judgement. Two new key judgements are also included in the new framework – ‘behaviours and attitudes’ and ‘personal development’.
And settings will continue to be awarded one of four grades – outstanding, good, requires improvement and inadequate – after an inspection but the reports generated will be redesigned to make them easier for parents to read.
