ofstedEvent Description:

This course will help you have plans in place so that you are ready for the inspection. It will share what is essential, what is optional and what can be left out. It will show what evidence Ofsted will be looking for to show progress both in lessons and over time. Ofsted has found that the quality of learning is hampered in weaker lessons by misunderstanding what makes a good lesson. This course will show what impacts upon judgements.

“One of my SLT also went to one of your INSET sessions recently – she was as “Wowed” as Jill and I were and is very excited at the prospect of you coming to work with all our staff and possibly with some staff from other local schools too. Well done and thank you Mary.” 

R A Campbell (Mrs); Headteacher at Westfield Primary School, Haverhill

“Just a huge thank you. We got the phone call exactly a week after I came on your course. I knew what to expect, felt well prepared and readyand was able to be calm and pragmatic with the staff who in turn did not panic and gave of their best. An extremely valuable course for which I am most grateful. Many thanks.”

Amanda Vaughan, Headteacher Grove Primary School
