Transcript of Ofsted- Who, What, Why?
of sustained criticism of English state
education. Government policy after
1992 was to ensure all schools were
inspected regularly by a rigorous and
transparent process. Reports were
to be written to a common format
accessible to parents and judgements
on schools consistent.
Consider why Ofsted came into force and the impact Ofsted has had on education today.

What are British Values?
Personal Development and Welfare
The right to act, believe and express oneself in a manner of one’s own choosing, free from unjust or undue control, coercion or violence of others, including the government.
The concept of individual freedom is central to the ideal of a free society.
Rule of law
The principle that all people, organisations and the elected government are subject to and accountable to law that is fairly applied and enforced.
The rule of law protects individual citizens and is essential for their wellbeing and safety. For example, the freedom to choose and hold a religion or a philosophical belief is protected in law.
The belief in freedom and equality between people, in which power is held by elected representatives or directly by the people themselves.
All people are involved in decision-making, typically by voting to elect representatives to speak on their behalf. It includes:
A political system for choosing and replacing the government through free and fair elections.
The active participation of the people, as citizens, in politics and civic life
Protection of the human rights of all citizens.
A rule of law, in which the laws and procedures apply equally to all citizens.
Mutual respect and tolerance
The acceptance that other people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour.
Each person, as a human being, has the inherent right to be treated with dignity and respect without regard to ability, age, gender, faith, heritage, race, sexual orientation disability or any other aspect of identity or personal circumstance.
Mutual respect and tolerance involves all actively working together to create a work and learning environment free from discrimination and harassment.
Consider how you setting would be rated under the Ofsted descriptors.
Complete a self evaluation of your setting
Early Years SEF example
Ofsted- Who, What, Why?
A department of the UK government, reporting to Parliament via the Department for Education
Effectiveness of leadership & management
Quality of teaching, learning & assessment
Personal development, behaviour & welfare
Outcomes for children & learners
Why do you think British Values were introduced?
How does your setting implement/promote British Values?
Research the Ofsted Inspection Framework and identify key points for each of the judgements that a childcare setting will be inspected on
The Early Childhood Rating Scale
The early years self-evaluation form (EY SEF)
Self evaluation form links to the judgements that Ofsted will make at inspection.
Not compulsory- However, Ofsted will require evidence of how you evaluate your setting.
The Environment Rating Scales are a set of standardised tools for measuring and improving the quality of early years provision. They offer a structured approach to quality improvement and self-evaluation
In the UK, they are being used by many local authorities and practitioners to improve the quality of early years provision.
Supports quality early years provision and long lasting positive outcomes for children.
Look at the Ofsted report provided.
Discuss in your groups how they were rated for each descriptor.
