5.1c Rigorous Evaluation of LOtC meeting Ofsted expectations
The Ofsted report “Learning Outside the Classroom – How Far Should You Go?” (October 2008) makes statements in the strongest terms to support the value of LOtC, including the fact that it raises achievement.
However, it also highlights the finding that even where LOtC is highly valued and provided to a high standard, it is rarely evaluated with sufficient rigor – i.e. in the way that classroom learning is evaluated.
This paper has been produced to help schools and other settings formulate a “rigorous evaluation process” applicable to LOtC and other off-site activity that meets Ofsted requirements.
