I’ve been away this week, not physically, mentally. Not only did I have a very worrying hospital appointment (no worrying now – all clear – YAY!) but we also got the call at work on Monday – Ofsted were coming! Cue: frantic tidying of classroom, marking books up to date, getting lesson plans written AND a parents’ evening. I calculated that with traveling to and from work I put in 51 hours work in 3 days! I was observed for 10 minutes! The inspector didn’t even look at my books, at my lesson plan or talk to my students. Ah well, it was all worth it, we came out as ‘Good with Outstanding Features’. We were told that if we had been under the old framework (which changed this month) we would have been Outstanding! Such good news.
