On my second OFSTED, I had a mad old trout who stank of fags and whisky standing behind me and between me and the board as I was teaching the class. Everytime I turned round I bumped into her and there was this stink coming from her that was really putting me and the kids off. She had the cheek to give my lesson an unsatisfactory even though she could hardly remember what it was about. I told my Head who was too spineless and lazy to do anything about it. Later in the inspection I was lectured by the 20 stone, obese, sweating, red faced HMI on how important PE was for kids and how I should ensure they participated. I am a PE graduate was PE coordinator. From then on I always took OFSTED/Inspector advice with a pinch of salt and only really listened to people who I knew could do it themselves. It seemed to work because I made it to headship.
