Ofsted – Sir Michael Wilshaw

  • During 2016, Ofsted will work with ‘Step up to Serve’ and the #iwill campaign to highlight publicly examples of good social action practice in schools, colleges and other education providers.

Ofsted’s new common inspection framework, introduced in 2015, places emphasis on the need for schools and colleges to provide a curriculum rich in personal development to enable children and young people to contribute to wider society and life in modern Britain.

In July 2016, Ofsted launched its resource ‘Social action: good examples from schools and colleges’ which highlights how a range of primary and secondary schools and colleges have embedded social action in their culture and practice to good effect.


Quote from Sir Michael Wilshaw, HMCI, Ofsted

“Ofsted has always understood the importance of how schools engage their students in extra-curricular activity and volunteering in their local community, which we reflect in our judgements on behaviour and safety.  Ofsted will ensure our guidance for inspectors and schools and colleges emphasises the importance of young people having the opportunity to serve others in their community. We wish Step Up To Serve every success in this important campaign.”
