Sean Harford’s points about what inspectors will look for (paraphrased)

Assessment needs to be effective in assessing pupil’s journey through the school curriculum. It shouldn’t be designed to fit an ‘idea’ of what a school thinks an inspector wants to see.

Inspectors will use the following to judge the effectiveness of assessment and whether it is having an impact on pupil’s learning:

  • Lesson observations
  • Pupil’s work
  • Discussion with pupils and teachers
  • School records

You don’t need to see vast amounts of data, spreadsheets, charts & graphs!

OFSTED recognise that in the upcoming year schools are in different stages of developing assessment and will take this into account when monitoring progress of their pupils.
