New Ofsted School Inspection Handbook: September 2012

Here is a copy of Ofsted’s new school inspection handbook (PDF) from September 2012.  Of particular note are pages 34 to 37 where updated guidelines are set out with regards to the quality of teaching, observing learning, observing learning over time and the grade descriptors from outstanding (1) to good (2) to requires improvement (3) and inadequate (4).

Has anything changed? Are there any additions or things taken out from the previous Ofsted literature?
