5.1d Ofsted Inspection

Schools are expected to self-evaluate. In its Clarification for Schools section, Ofsted explains that self-evaluation is intended to help schools to assess how well they are doing against the core areas set out in legislation. They do not want schools preparing things that are solely for inspection purposes. The process of self-evaluation offers an opportunity to consider Learning Outside within teaching and learning and the difference that it makes to personal and social development, well-being, school improvement and overall effectiveness.

This document offers examples of questions that may help you to consider and assess the contribution of curricular and extra-curricular Learning Outside.
