What is your advice about? When OFSTED call

  1. Don’t go into a frenzy, this is easier said than done. Remember OFSTED don’t judge individual lessons these days.
  2. Make sure you take in the advice of your head of department and Principal. The best schools have collegiate staff who sing from the same hymn sheet.
  3. Plan your lessons clearly, make sure books are marked and show your ideas to your head of department. If you are worried, keep it simple.
  4. Leave school as soon as you are prepared and your planning, marking and printing are done. You don’t want to get caught up in any frenzy.
  5. Get a good night’s sleep. Overworking will not improve the quality of lessons and you will still want to be teaching great lessons when OFSTED are gone.
