The new Ofsted Inspection Framework marks a significant shift in focus, shining a much brighter light on non-Core subjects. This creates a real risk for science leaders: it lacks the status of the other core subjects, and it may now be left behind as schools work to improve their foundation subjects. This three-part on-demand series covers everything a science coordinator should know.
2019 marked a big shift in Ofsted focus, but it isn’t a move ‘away from’ the core subjects. There is certainly a stronger emphasis on foundation subjects, but it’s important that high standards are maintained in the Core as well. Science has an uneasy position in all of this: it lacks the status of English and maths, and it may now be left behind in the drive to improve foundation subjects.
This three-part on-demand series guides science leaders through the new Framework, and provides them with dozens of practical ideas.
Part 1 sets out the expectations, inspection guidance, and overarching views of excellent curriculum design. It will cover:
Part 2 looks at how you might implement your vision for science. It will cover:
Part 3 looks at ways to judge the impact of your school’s science curriculum. It will cover:
