    Love this bit. :D

    At the heart of the EIF is the new ‘quality of Christmas’ judgement, the purpose of which is to put a single conversation about Christmas at the centre of inspection. This conversation draws together:

    *standards of decorations

    *brightness of glitter

    *sprout feedback

    *quality of wrapping.

    The framework also states that by New Year’s Eve, all Christmas marking and assessment must be responded to in writing. This can be in the form of thank you letters but may be a single written comment. For example, “You are right, I should not have eaten the entire contents of my sister’s selection box just before lunch. Next year I will hide it until Boxing Day.”

    Thank you for sharing . I love the how many people will be needed to help the cook stay in their feet to make the gravy and of course the warning that next year the objectives will be different :p:D

    Who remembers when all teachers would have thought this no more far-fetched than the Ofsteds we now have to endure? That's another point-surely it should fail on FBV, as it considers xmas purely in terms of glitter and sprouts, and does not talk about how it might mean something different to some people...I suppose it sums up how education has been changed from something meaningful and vital to a series of pointless tick-box exercises (dancing penguin with Santa hat emoji).
