Yes, thanks from me too.  May only be draft at present but will be very useful for auditing, SEF, monitoring colleagues and those of us being forced into job hunting in Suffolk  :(

It makes interesting reading
Is the prominence of fieldwork a relatively new thing. I don't have the current criteria to hand so can't compare but that line jumped out at me

Hey, nothing gets past you Alan!!  ;o)  What an interesting find!
I know of a primary school having a geography specific inspection later this week, but I presume these Ofsted subject tables are intended just for secondary?

Hi Chris
I would assume that the criteria is for all schools who are having a geography inspection regardless iof which phase they are in!

Good spot Alan, always good to look into the mind of Ofsted, even in draft mode.
