No one should do any special preparation for Ofsted, class teachers or senior leaders. There are no short cuts, insider information or quick fixed in terms of preparing for an Ofsted inspection. Good teaching, management, behaviour and outcomes must be embedded in the custom and practice of a school. However, there is a lot that class teachers and senior leaders can do to work with Ofsted to ensure that an inspection goes smoothly. Simply understanding how Ofsted conduct an inspection can help to take some of the stress out of the process. This session will help you to understand the ways in which inspectors use the handbook to conduct an inspection and to form judgements.
