In April 2021, Ofsted began publishing a number of curriculum subject reviews to support and inform those leading the thinking of these subjects in our schools. The research reviews collate currently available research evidence with consideration of what the evidence indicates about a high-quality education in each subject.

Ofsted’s Inspecting the curriculum document (May 2019) explains how inspectors will look at the quality of education with revised methodology under the Education Inspection Framework (EIF) introduced in September 2019, whilst recognising that each individual inspection is different.
