No, of course I'm not. Every child deserves the best teaching we can give them. I kind of hope that the mechanic who repairs my brakes or the proctocologist examining me for bowl cancer is also not just 'settling for a good', either. I get that there are elements of Ofsted outstanding which may not translate into the best outcomes for children and if SLT have any backbone those should be dumped. But I've worked in several genuinely outstanding schools and you know what? They frequently are. No, I don't believe in jumping through pointless hoops to win a paper grade, nor do I believe in grinding down colleagues who are struggling. But personally, I want to be the best teacher I can be. I want to close my classroom door each night knowing that that was the best I could have done today. And maybe learning from it and working out what I could do better tomorrow. That's what I mean by aiming for outstanding.
