  1. Presumably this person obtained her position after due process of application, interview and selection with supporting references. You are presumably not her performance manager as an inspector, so it is not your place to raise concerns about her teaching ability with ISI.
    Many of us have worked for headteachers who are shockingly bad teachers. They often have other qualities though but we wouldn't think of going to the Local authority to complain about their teaching qualities. Same thing I think.

    Point taken but how can someone with such low professional standards actually comment on the effectiveness of another school?
    I wouldn't be raising concerns about the ability to teach but the ability to actually inspect. This person is basically seeing out the final years (2 at the most) before retirement and really is passed it now!
  3. The QA and line management systems will verify her ability to inspect (or not). Unless you are on an inspection team with her, you are not in a position to comment.

    Maybe Gove is correct, always thought him to be a fool!
    Same old same old! Protection for those who are perceived to know best - can't teach so go on an advise!
