Ofsted continues to publish its subject reports. We have already seen the results of its investigations into science, maths and history. Now the speed of publication has picked up. Three reports, published last term, tackled music, PE and geography.

Each report covers primary and secondary education and builds on subject research reviews already published by Ofsted (see below for a link to all the documents). They are essential reading for subject leaders as they give us an indication of current Ofsted thinking and include examples of what the authors consider to be good practice. However, it is made clear that the reports do not represent a tick-list of what schools should and shouldn’t be doing.
