    Do Ofsted inspectors observe on Mondays and Fridays, or are those days put aside for planning and reviewing?
  2. Not sure about Mondays, but they definitely observe Fridays - our inspection was Thursday and Friday a few months ago.
  3. Mondays are definitely out as the current framework for Section 5 school inspections is a "day before" notice period, i.e. they can't come in on a Monday as they need to only give the school 24 hours or less notice to abide by the current rules.

    Fridays is a definite possibility though as inspectors like to have a weekend to write the report......
