  • outline of key Ofsted expectations
  • identifying main concerns for schools
  • supporting you to find out where your school is now in relation to Ofsted expectations for computing provision
  • identifying questions that may be asked during a subject inspection
  • signposting support for your school’s computing needs
  • evidencing impact


Participants will:

  • understand the process of an Ofsted deep dive
  • be able to identify strengths and areas for development in the delivery of their computing curriculum
  • know what is needed to prepare for an Ofsted deep dive into computing
