Well, another week, another Teacher Voice Poll. First, last week’s poll asked the question whether Ofsted should introduce no-notice inspections in light of the new Handbook changes. It was great because the number of educators who responded nearly doubled from the week before so it’ll mean a better sample to review. The result surprised me…76.92% of those votes answered in the affirmative, that Ofsted should introduce no-notice inspections. Of course, this is only a small sample but it does raise some questions! I will probably blog on this later in the week.
This week’s poll relates again to the new Ofsted Handbook, which I suppose as it will make a direct impact on our teaching and learning isn’t a huge surprise. The poll question actually stems from a discussion I had on @Primary1Teacher’s blog post on the same subject where he expressed an opinion which led to a very good discussion. So, what do you think? Have Ofsted made the right decision to stop grading lessons in their lesson observations?
As usual, please cast your vote, make a comment on your views if you can and share with all you know. Will this make an impact on teacher’s views on Ofsted inspections? Should Senior Leadership Teams take note and also not grade lessons, if they still are? Let’s hear your Teacher Voice and see if we can generate some discussion on this topic!
