Does any one have a good lesson observation form suitable for the new 2012 inspection framework? The guidance provide best fit criteria and tell you not to break them down into a checklist. I am keen that we can be seen to be observing lessons accurately using the criteria, but I am struggling to provide the guidance to systematically collect evidence to support a judgement. If you are in the same position, then can you say how you are doing lesson observations and how you gather evidence for how good the teaching is in your school. This is one of the first questions that inspectors ask when they come in, so it is important that the system we use matches the criteria that inspectors will use. So what sort of proforma could be used to help observers who don't have Ofsted training?
