The end of history SEFs for OFSTED

Even if you have never had to complete a departmental SEF , you will know how much time senior leaders have to spend on them. No longer. Michael Gove has asked OFSTED to scrap them in a further attempt to reduce bureaucracy. You might also be interested to know that he has simplified the main foci for inspection too, narrowing them down to just four- the usual suspects: the quality of teaching; the effectiveness of leadership; pupils’ behaviour and safety; and pupils’ achievement. So weep copious tears about the disappearance of community cohesion!
