Reading widely and often – Ofsted myths about reading and inspection

We are really pleased to have Lee Owston along to bust some myths.


Lee is a Senior Her Majesty’s Inspector (SHMI) in the North East, Yorkshire and Humber region and Ofsted’s specialist adviser for early education. One of his responsibilities within Ofsted is to champion the role and importance of reading, as an aspect of English and across the curriculum, when pursuing the very best education for children and pupils.

This short talk will address some of the myths surrounding the inspection of reading and highlight to delegates the place of reading, in all its forms, within both high quality education and high quality inspection.
