Just read the OFSTED report for a local primary school, which includes gems such as the following: 'Pupils’ behaviour requires improvement. Pupils are not always well organised with the correct equipment to hand to enable them to learn. Desks can be cluttered and not all pupils have the equipment they need in front of them to work efficiently. The school’s curriculum does not.... teach pupils about mental and emotional health in sufficient depth.Pupils have a partial understanding of how to stay healthy, because knowledge of their own emotional health is limited. The curriculum has not fully developed pupils’ awareness of their own mental health and well-being. Consequently, pupils could not explain how they are able to manage their feelings. The school has not checked if extra-curricular activities have supported pupils’ progress in a wide range of subjects.' I know OFSTED will never be popular, but those early OFSTED inspections in the 90s were quite supportive & informative. Inspectors spent a week in schools, saw lots of full-length lessons, interviewed ALL subject leaders, and at the end produced a lengthy, broad-based report which did generally did give a picture of what the school was about, its strengths & its weaknesses. Yet even in those days I'm not sure the above judgements would have found their way into a report, let alone into today's abbreviated, data-driven snapshots......unless these are OFSTED's new thrusts?
