From September, 2019, after a period of consultation, the new Ofsted Inspection Framework will come into force. One of the most important changes is the addition of criteria setting out the responsibilities of leadership in managing teacher workload and wellbeing. This is set out in the ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ descriptors in the Leadership and Management section of the Inspection Handbook.
This webinar from the School Mental Health Group reviews the criteria, defines what is expected of schools and provides strategies your school can implement to meet the new Ofsted requirements.
If your school follows the advice contained in the webinar, you will not only be providing a solid evidence base for your inspection, but also protecting your staff from excessive workloads and improving their wellbeing and mental health.
Our message is simple: If we don’t look after the wellbeing of our teachers, how can we expect them to look after the wellbeing of our children?
