Today, Heather Fearn, who is inspector curriculum and development lead at the organisation, told the ResearchED conference in London that it is discussing including workload in the new framework. Tes reports.
In a session about the overhaul, she was asked whether there was anything in the new framework “to promote positive workload and sustainability of integrals when retention and recruitment is the way it is”.
She replied: “It is certainly being discussed, ways in which that can be considered.”
Over the summer, Tes reported on growing tensions between Ofsted and the DfE over the latter’s fears that the new framework could lead to increased workload in schools.
