English & maths and the new Education Inspection Framework

Ofsted logo

What’s new?

From September 2019, inspectors will continue to make judgements about mathematics and English within the context of the new framework, and particularly in relation to the quality of education, considering the intent, implementation and impact of the curriculum. Here’s a summary of what’s covered in each of these three areas:

Intent

  • Ambition and relevance of the curriculum
  • Planning and sequencing the curriculum

Implementation

  • Expertise of teachers
  • The work that teachers give to learners
  • Encouraging learners to use subject specific, professional and technical vocabulary
  • Design and use of activities to help learners remember long term the content that they
  • have been taught
  • Use of assessment
  • Resources and materials that teachers select and produce

Impact

  • Development of new knowledge
  • Progress from starting points
  • Gaining qualifications that enable learners to go on to destinations that meet their interests and aspirations

Other judgements in the new framework that may include specific reference to English and mathematics are:

Behaviour and attitudes

  • Attendance
  • Learners’ motivation and attitudes to learning

Personal development

  • How learners are prepared for the next stage in their learning or career
  • The extent of the curriculum in providing for learners’ broader development

Leadership and management

  • Leaders’ ambition and expectations for all learners
  • Ensuring that learners benefit from high quality teaching
  • Professional development for staff
