Ofsted findings from school visits in October 2020

Amanda Spielman has discussed what Ofsted found in school visits to education and children’s social care providers during October 2020.

‘It’s becoming clear that children’s and learners’ experiences since the first national lockdown in March fall into three broad groups. There are those who have been, and still are, coping well in the face of restrictions; there is a group who have been hardest hit, largely because of the interplay between their circumstances and the impact of the pandemic; and there is the majority – a group who have slipped back in their learning to varying degrees since schools were closed to most children and movement restricted.’
