Ofsted will inspect your school against 4 key judgements:
- Quality of education
- Behaviour and attitudes
- Personal development
- Leadership and management
Quality of education
Your school's curriculum is at the heart of Ofsted's 'quality of education' judgement.
As a governing board, you won't be inspected under the 'quality of education' judgement, so you don't need to know this information in great detail, but understanding the basics could help you monitor your school's approach.
Intent, implementation and impact
The 'quality of education' judgement is split into 3 curriculum concepts:
- Intent: your school's curriculum plan, including its design, structure and sequence
- Implementation: how your school's intended curriculum is taught and assessed
- Impact: the outcomes for your pupils as a result of the education they've received
