I see that Ofsted is encouraging consultation on proposed changes to its inspection framework. I wondered whether to bother thinking about thinking about responding.
I decided not to. I might have done so if I thought that Ofsted had any interest in (G)L/ESD/EE/CC(E)fS etc,. But it seems to me that it still has a clear standards / equality of opportunity agenda.
Anyway, I think that, in Ofsted’s view, schools are not good schools because they focus on (G)L/ESD/EE/CC(E)fS etc. Rather they think that such schools focus on (G)L/ESD/EE/CC(E)fS etc, because they are good schools.
I think so too. In other words, the correlation is the opposite from that which (G)L/ESD/EE/CC(E)fS etc, advocates of all stripes wish (and worse, think) it to be.
