What is your advice about? What to expect when Ofsted call

  1. Ofsted call. Remember that for the rest of the day teachers will keep teaching and pupils will keep learning.
  2. When you get home dinner still needs cooking, washing still needs washing, packed lunches still need packing. Normal family life continues.
  3. Expect SLT to remain calm, encouraging and positive (in public). Take them at their word.
  4. Expect to feel relieved/disappointed when your lesson is/isn’t observed and it went well/terribly. (delete as appropriate)
  5. After Ofsted leave remember that teachers will keep teaching and pupils will keep learning.
