http://www.bee-it.co.uk/schoolip-news/860-ofsted-raises-the-bar-with-new-inspection-framework-.html

The bar is being raised for all school inspections and it is anticipated that these changes could make it more difficult for schools to continue to meet the expectations required of them.
 
Key changes to the framework include a new ‘requires improvement’ grade to replace the ‘satisfactory’ grade, reiterating that this grade is only a staging post on a school’s journey towards providing a good or outstanding education for all children...

With the implementation of a new set of teaching standards, along with a new Ofsted Inspection Framework, schools are adapting to a rapidly changing environment.
 
The new standards replaced the Core Standards and were initially billed as aiming to simplify the standard framework and replace Performance Management with Appraisals. As with all change there must be a period of adjustment, to adapt to the new framework or standards and modify existing practices to ensure that they are in line with the new guidance.

A year on from schools stating their concern over the government’s removal of ring-fenced funding for ICT, technology budgets across the UK are increasing, recent research has revealed.
 
The British Educational Suppliers Association’s (BESA) findings come from the 15th annual survey into the opinions and trends of ‘ICT in UK State Schools’. The highly anticipated research, carried out in conjunction with the National Education Research Panel (NERP) provides analysis into the likely provision of technology in UK state schools in the next year and gives extensive insight into teacher confidence, training and the level of ICT in schools.
