What is your advice about? When Ofsted Call

  1. Don’t panic – data/results/management of the school – not your individual responsibility so let SLT & HoDs worry about those things!
  2. Focus on your own classes – if you normally plan for kids to learn stuff then carry on. Show you know your class and your subject. No magic show required just great teaching.
  3. Make sure you are happy with your books/folders and that you are following the school policy regarding marking/assessment. Implementation of policy is being checked not you.
  4. You work in a team – ask questions and be ready to support each other. You may not even see an inspector as the visits are quick.
  5. Ask to be seen if you want to show off what you do – a few colleagues have done this and felt 50 feet tall afterwards!
