    I did exactly that but if I get in trouble I’ll just claim I didn’t have my reading glasses on.

    There was a school with a vaguely similar name to mine ( St Something or other) so I just signed up to that.

    If OFSTED organise a survey like a dog's breakfast, what do they expect!

    But this is amusing, no?
    OFSTED have tweeted not long ago. (My red)

    "We're sorry the original tweet suggested the survey was open to all. It isn't, for the reason that we wouldn't be able to process all the responses if it were. Our survey of 1,000 schools - contacted at random to minimise bias - will give us a representative sample.

    3:10 AM - 2 Dec 2018"

    Oooooooh yes it is!

    Now-how will they process the sixteen thousand responses they get for each of the thousand schools?Hmmm.

    I predict a flurried red faced backpedal behind the scenes and a muted retraction of the survey within the next 48 hours...

    I started completing it and was very negative. However I then thought that this was not fair on the school selected so I abandoned it.

    Why oh why do you need to choose a school? Surely just the Key Stage would be enough.

    It's not just the selection of schools that's dodgy. Some staff at those selected schools claim they weren't informed of the survey. So what is Ofsted doing? Sending the survey link to SMT and allowing them to choose which teachers are invited to participate?
    Sloppy (or deceitful and manipulative) work from Ofsted.

    Any chance of TES doing a follow up on this? Can't see any OFSTED responses to the debacle on twitter...

    Had a colleague* threatened with disciplinary today because ''OFSTED won't like your exercise books. Your comments need to be much more detailed''...

    Maybe I should tweet at OFSTED and ask them...

    *yes it really was a colleague. That isn't code.

    In general they seem to ignore any tweet that isn't saying how wonderful an inspection was...
