https://www.tes.com/news/treat-school-inspectors-your-favourite-auntie OFSTED are management's problem, not mine. They give headteachers nightmares, not me. It is the head that's in the firing line. That's why management are so utterly obsessed with them. If the school fails, I don't. The head and management team might be sacked, I won't. Unfortunately then it's likely the school will go into SM, and that is a special kind of hell for a teacher. But, OFSTED won't make their decision because of your lesson. They'll make it because that's the decision they want to make. They'll make it because of data. Or because the head is in / out of favour. Or because it's one of the few non academies left. It will have nothing to do with how good / bad / indifferent the school is. Inspectors are just another one of the parade through the classroom. Pay them no attention whatsoever.
