Ofsted wanted to come it, got Kate Middleton instead!
« on: October 17, 2012, 09:42:00 PM »
Last Monday we got the ofsted call but it was deferred as Kate (and Wills but he cancelled) landed her helicopter on our school field for a local visit.

It was all very exciting but we are now in a wierd limbo of we know they are coming but they are not coming, done full huge lesson plans for a full week now and am not doing anything other than mark and plan - ie not doing my Faculty job as I haven't time.

Anyone got any advice on how quickly they're likely to come - this is worse than torture!!

From tomorrow I am stopping doing full lesson plans - so I can get other stuff done.

Crazy days.

Goodness me - that's quite something.
Can't answer your question but having read the recent guidance I think they're looking for 'planned lessons' and not 'lesson plans' - also looking for typicality - asking students if this is what usually happens.

We're expecting them soon, but who knows when.

Hope all goes well.

I agree Judith, so I am using my planner as normal and basically doing what I always do.  I have heard they could now take as long as six weeks. ::)

Thanks for replies :-)
