Avoid unnecessary strain and workload in anticipation of an inspection, by joining this short CPD. You’ll find out what Ofsted are looking for and, just as importantly, what they don’t expect departments to produce – separating evidence from myth. You’ll develop a lean preparation plan, to become confident in the knowledge that your curriculum and its implementation are in a good place. You’ll also consider how to ensure that the teaching team develop strong pedagogy and practice, leading to visibly outstanding computing provision.
