  1. Ofsted Inspections Patrick Shevlin Head of School Standards and Improvement (Foundation Stage, Key Stages 1 and 2) May 2008

  2. Section 5 Inspectionsfor Bedfordshire’s schools2005/6, 2006/7, 2007/Mar 2008

  3. Bedfordshire schools’ Ofsted Inspections September 2005 – March 2008

  4. % of Bedfordshire’s lower schools with good or Outstanding Ofsted inspections

  5. % of Bedfordshire’s middle and upper schools with good or Outstanding Ofsted inspections

  6. Special measures and Notice to Improve • Schools entering an Ofsted category of concern have decreased since 2005. Only three remain, two requiring a notice to improve (one middle and one lower) and one requiring special measures (making good progress)

  7. Middle schools • Bedfordshire middle schools achieve less well overall than schools in other phases • Inspection outcomes are governed by achievement and standards which makes middle school outcomes problematic because they are judged on KS2 results and Contextual Value Added • Successful schools use assessment well to track pupils’ progress – HMCI Report 2007 (Assessing Pupils’ Progress – APP)

  8. HMCI Report 2007 – Recurrent concerns • Pupils’ writing (especially boys) KS2/3 - need skills in drafting, editing and redrafting • Insufficient emphasis on phonics and weaknesses in the teaching of phonics • Under-emphasis on using and applying mathematics (KS1 and 2) • Weak subject knowledge in non core subjects (primary) • The setting on undemanding tasks which provide little opportunity for pupils to work independently (primary and secondary) • Need to improve continuity between phases • The quality of literacy provision in year 7 needs to improve

  9. Issues for Governors • Governance is judged as a subset of leadership and management • Grades sometimes not consistent with Overall Effectiveness and is often due to governors not fulfilling their statutory duties or holding the school to account for its performance • Inspection has focused recently on the Disabilities and Discrimination Act and is about to focus on Community Cohesion

  10. Summary • Issues for improvement centre on • improving middle level leadership in all schools, • tracking pupil progress, • assessment ofand for learning and • raising standards in English and mathematics
