Well, a brief word on last week’s poll. The results surprised me a little. The most popular answer to how much time did work-related activity take of teacher’s summer holidays was 21-30% with 37.5% of teachers votes. I was expecting the answer to be more than that so that is pleasant news! I think I’ll leave the polls open as the weeks go on so you can add your answer as weeks go on if you miss any.
This weeks poll is based on the new Ofsted Handbook (for related blog posts, see Scenes From The Battleground, The Learning Spy and cazzypotsblog). Considering Ofsted instructors are now being guided to not favour a particular learning style and ‘look at’ rather than ‘look for’ in their lesson observations, should Ofsted now implement no-notice inspections?
Do these changes make it possible for no-notice inspections? Should things not be changed in this aspect of Ofsted’s operations? Or would there be a way it could work, with other changes accompanying it?
As usual, please vote, comment and share with all you know!
