Do / can OFSTED visit in the last week of the year?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by arrow15, Jul 13, 2010.

  1. SMT have had us in state of alert for a while. Some are convinced that they will still turn up either the end of this week or still turn up next week (the last week?)

    Anyone know the answer?

    Technically they could. I've never heard of a case, however.
    That's not the answer you were hoping for, is it? [​IMG]
     


  3. Did have one starting on the first week in July with 12 teaching days to go and temepratures in the 30 odds and also had one before Christmas with 12 teaching days to go ... comment When does Christmas start ( reply when you 8888 off out of here ..... result one came to watch carol rehearsal on Friday afternoon )

    Season of goodwill and OFSTEd don't match

    Yes.
    2 of our neighbouring schools, both good schools got the call yesterday - Ofsted are in Mon/Tues of next week. One of them's 3 years isn't up til November so they were particularly shocked.
    On a similar note, a few other cluster schools have received "golden letters" from Ofsted, saying as the school has maintained their KS2 results, they won't be getting Ofsteded until Sep 2011. Been trying to figure out if there's some agenda with schools that boycotted and schools that didn't!?
     
  11. You have heard it now .... add it to your experience list... you never know!
