Ofsted Music 'Deep Dive'

    Hi all,
    Has anybody experienced the new 'deep dive' inspection from Ofsted? My headteacher has just informed me that as we have a musical specialist (other academies in out trust do not) she will be suggesting music when the phone call comes. (Seems a bit unfair as I only work 1 day a week there!) So its basically me, as I'm music lead and teacher across the school. At first I wasn't too daunted as have been doing this for years in different settings, but having googled it the questions seem very daunting!! I'm much better at the practical teaching than the paperwork (although all in place) and questions! Anyone have first hand experience of this and the questioning? eeeeek.

    There is a Facebook group called Music OFSTED Deep Dives. The teachers discuss questions and their experiences, Have a search, you might find it useful. Good luck.

    I have just had the same conversation at my school (also a part time teacher). The school round the corner from us has just had Ofsted so I am now looking for the same information.

    Have a look at the facebook site I mentioned above. It is very informative.
