Are you convinced that the new Ofsted framework will make inspection fairer?

    The answer is most probably a definitive "no" for the very obvious reason that I don't think OFSTED even recognises the actual problem.

    No. OFSTED will still be grading schools from 1-4 using subjective and arbitrary guidelines. There is no research or academic consensus on what "good teaching" means or looks like, so OFSTED cannot possibly know either. If a school receives a 3 or a 4, it is likely to be semi-privatised (a.k.a. "academy status") or given to a new private trust/company to manage and the staff will face a whole series of unpleasant sanctions (a.k.a "support").

    No, more likely to be convinced of the opposite.

    No. Ofsted are finished.

    Political and outdated. Desperately trying to reinvent themselves. Final nail in their coffin for me was their complicity in off-rolling.
