    Hey guys!

    I'm new to the literacy coordinator position and we were expecting the ofsted inspection in summer, however we received a call on Friday informing us they will be in on Friday.

    Luckily, I have been up to date with keeping data, looking at assessment, interventions, certain groups, achievements, etc, but just wondering if anyone has any questions they may ask which may throw me off course, or any advice.

    Have looked on the internet, but not come across much!

    Thank you!

    If I were you, I would have three children in mind that have been monitored and shown improvement. Choose one from Year 6, one from Year 4 and one from Year 2. By telling the inspector about these children, what you or the class teacher did with them, what the outcome was and where you're going next, you should impress them no end. Answer all their questions by refering to specific children if you can.
  3. We have recently been inspected under the new framework and they didn't question our English subject leader. They interviewed the Head and the Assessment coordinator (me), and no one else. One of the things that they were looking at was directly linked to Writing, but they didn't interview the subject leader. If you're up to date with data and all the things you state, it should be fine, even if they do spring a surprise interview. They were interested in looking at marking in English books, and talking to children, but they are not allowed to ask for anything that you haven't got. It was a very friendly inspection as far as I was concerned.
