Join us for Westminster Insight’s Ofsted Inspections Conference: a timely opportunity to review the new framework in practice, one year on.

We will focus specifically on areas such as defining a 'knowledge rich' curriculum and 'cultural capital', reducing staff workload and using data effectively to monitor Pupil Progress.

You will hear insightful and practical case studies from Ofsted rated Outstanding schools, as well as schools who have moved away from being in Special Measures. You will also learn how to achieve an Ofsted Good or Outstanding rating, in Leadership and Management.

Our event is designed for all school headteachers, deputy heads, members of the leadership team, chairs of governors and heads of curriculum.
