Suspend Ofsted Inspections for Schools and Local Authorities in 2021
Government to suspend the programme of Ofsted Inspections for schools and Children’s Social Care to enable key workers to focus on supporting children through COVID Restrictions rather than Ofsted Preparations. Ofsted Inspectors could be redeployed to provide support to specific establishments.
Teachers and Social Care staff are under significant pressures due to 10 months of COVID restrictions. Staff shortages are increasing and the sectors are under unprecedented strain. Ofsted Inspections are unfair and unnecessary burdens at this time. 2022-2025 Inspections should include a judgement on COVID period performance specifically instead. Inspectors to be redeployed for 2021 to support establishments/LAs previously graded RI or Inadequate, as consultant practitioners.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
