We had Ofsted last July and got a 'Good', but our head has warned us that he's certain we'll get a no-notice inspection soon as our Y6s haven't reached their targets. I don't know anyone who has had one of these. Do they still last for two days? Do they literally just arrive one morning without a phonecall? Will they make a comparison with schools/lessons/teachers who have had 2-4 days to prepare? Although ideally past observations should always be as good as they are the rest of the time, but I'm sure as we all know-they aren't exactly the same! If you have warning of an observation (or an audit if you are working in the real world!)-you give it a bit of extra polish, make sure your displays are fine, planning/marking totally fab and up to date and lessons 'tip top'! This seems unfair that we were fine less than a year ago, yet the panic has started all over again!!
