Well done - many congratulations! We had a subject specific inspection a couple of years ago on the one hand very rewarding on the other very intense and incredibly tiring! Great advice. I agree with your point about the handbook - we found that the fact we had a thorough and uptodate department handbook outlining everything was also picked up on by the inspector.

I hope you have a quieter week this week and enjoy and celebrate!

Just re-reading this as we got the call last week, not geog but a two day subject inspection for RE, and since I am Head of Faculty and have no Head of RE - she has been off since Nov, then resigned - I have it all to sort for RE  :(

Fwiw all of our paperwork is going to go online - in a wiki (or potentially series of wikis). When (if) anyone ever asks for it they'll be given a guest user password. Paperless approach - with the advantage that anyone can see exactly when (and by whom) any page was updated.

Might be worth considering - I'm also hoping it'll annoy someone in a suit at some point...
I loved the words you wrote to me/But that was bloody yesterday
