That was the term that was

OFSTED came and went and we have got on with the business of education. I have always found OFSTED teams to be a variable bunch, some individuals excellent, challenging me to consider how we can best improve our provision, others with whom I have enjoyed debate and disagreement and some unfortunately who have their own agenda and a need to prove themselves.
I don’t disagree with the need for external moderation and challenge of a senior team’s judgement and provision, but the current system does remain flawed.
However, the system is as it is and at present we need to work with the teams who are guests in our school. If we are ill prepared for a rigorous debate and assessment then we do our staff and students no favours at all.
