When I set the topic it had been quite relevant for me as I had been involved in a number of inspections. By the time it came to set the homework over on The Head’s Office I wasn’t sure how it would be received. I did get some good wishes and suggestions to wear my tin helmet and I had set a given that Ofsted are here to stay at least for the foreseeable future so could folks behave!
@mrpeel: #ukedchat idea 1 schools move towards reflective dialogic communities – autonomous
@raisechildrens: #ukedchat children should set the Ofsted criteria as they know how they want the school to be!
@traceyab1: #ukedchat just had a fab ofsted inspection team – put us at ease and got the best from everyone in doing so! Made it much nicer process.
@MrTomtheteacher: #ukedchat A thought; could OFSTED drop in a few times a year, rather than one high pressure week? Would get better picture. #randomsampling
@Blenkaz: #ukedchat why not have realistic current outstanding teachers visit schools to obs and offer general feedback to schools?
@nickotkdlV: @norfolkshine OFSTED should be more of a two way communication #ukedchat
@Mad_teach: #ukedchat short notice – less time to panic! And if ur doin a good job everyday, does it matter when they come???
@digitaldaisies: @TheHeadsOffice That is the problem with OFSTED set up – not designed to disseminate ideas, just to judge #ukedchat
@nickotkdlV: #ukedchat i believe OFSTED people should be given time to work in school to allow this Best Practice to be shared!
@MichelleDhillon: @canonsopp @mrpeel Would Ofsted be like John Torode or Gregg Wallace? #ukedchat
@Langnut: @CanonsOPP @mrpeel @michelledhillon difference is critics can’t close a restaurant if the customers still keep coming! #ukedchat
@mrpeel: #ukedchat idea 2 inspectors to be drawn from teaching community a la jury service (nicked that one)TWEET OF THE WEEK:
@ePaceonline: #ukedchat Should Ofsted be a friendly mentor or a stern judge? ABOUT YOUR HOST:
