What will I learn?
Earlier this year, Ofsted removed the requirement for settings to complete their written self-evaluation form. However, self-evaluation continues to be an important aspect of the inspection process.
Although providers do not need to provide a written evaluation, they must be well prepared to discuss the quality of education and care they provide and how well they meet children’s needs. The new Early Years Inspection Handbook states: "Inspectors will consider how well leaders and managers evaluate their provision and know how they can improve it or maintain its high standards."
The aim of this session is to help providers reflect on the effectiveness of their current system of critical evaluation and consider ways to make it even better.
- The purpose of critical evaluation
- Innovative ideas for gathering evidence
- Involving children, parents, staff and other professionals
- The Quality of Education judgement in the Early Years Inspection Handbook 2019
- Setting realistic and achievable targets for improvement
- Confidently celebrating successes and achievements.
