When things go wrong

    In secondary schools, HMIe feed back to individual depts and to SMT. There is no whole school feedback session. I understand that this is the case at the end of primary inspections. This is important because SMTs can sometimes be less than frank about criticisms made by HMIe when feeding back to the staff.
    There is also the opportunity for individual teachers to raise concerns during the inspection by taking up the offer of "drop in" sessions with a designated HMIe at some point in the school day.
    If there are significant concerns then the HT should raise these with the lead inspector and with the local authority.
    Teachers can also raise concerns with their union (SSTA in my case) . These are sometimes raised directly with HMIe by the union concerned or sometimes during regular (usually annual) liaison meetings between the national officers of the union and the HMIe.
