Ofsted this week – Wednesday and Thursday. So far I have:
- Prepared my lessons so that I can focus on helping out the rest of the team. We will know further details of the inspection tomorrow.
- Re-written the first page of the department’s SEF – the bit covering standards and results
- Re drafted the department development plan
Tomorrow I will cobble together the latest KS3 and 4 data, comparing our progress to this time last year.
It was around this time that the department was visited as part of a ‘Subject Inspection’ . I had only been is post for 4 weeks, as the outcome was inadequate. This time we have made huge strides forward.
This will be my 3rd Ofsted inspection in 5 and a half years of teaching. I found the first 2 occasions very positive and am therefore looking forward to the inspection. I’ll be blogging and tweeting updates through the week as I prepare for the inspection!
