Sean Harford, Ofsted's National Director of Education, on our new inspection framework and the summer break.

Ofsted's Head of Research, Daniel Muijs, explains how we've used cognitive load theory in the development of our new education inspection framework.
It’s not particularly highbrow, but when talking about Ofsted’s impact on the education sector, I tend to rely on a Spider-Man quote from Peter Parker’s uncle: "With great power, comes great responsibility."
