    Isn't Ofsted the party guest that keeps on giving? They're their own joke.

    What has an IQ of 150?

    151 Ofsted inspectors

    You get better results using PE teachers as the subject though...

    Borrowed this one from the NHS staff about consultants.

    What is the difference between an OFSTED inspector and God?

    God knows he's not an OFSTED inspector.

    Or this one from the music industry.
    An OFSTED inspector goes into a shop and asks for a book by a particular author. The man behind the counter says "Your an OFSTED inspector aren't you" The surprised OFSTED inspector says " Why yes, - How did you know?"
    The man says, "This is a fish and chip shop. The book shop is next door.".

    An OFSTED inspector, visiting a primary school in Yorkshire, sat down at a table of Year 5 children who had been grouped together because of their learning dfficulties.

    The inspector was eyed suspiciously by the group and then one of the lads spoke.

    "Can thee do long division?"
    "Yes," said the inspector.
    "Can thee do spelllings on t`board?"
    "Yes," said the inspector.
    "Can thee do joined up writing?"
    "Yes", said the inspector.
    "Then you`re on t`wrong table, mate!" said the lad.

    There is a distinct need for a "Dislike" tab........ to be placed in any kind of category with Ofshit inspectors goes beyond the pale !

    Badly done @Scintillant ... badly done.....

    How do you stop an Ofsted inspector from drowning?

    Take your foot off his head.

    What's the difference between a Dementor and an Ofsted Inspector?

    One inhabits the deepest, filthiest places. It glories in pain and despair and drains all peace, hope and happiness from the air around them. Get too near one and every good feeling, every happy memory will be sucked out of you. It is truly soulless and evil. If it can, it will feed on you long enough to reduce you to something like itself...

    ... the other one is from Harry Potter.

    OFSTED is an acronym for:

    Oh Father, send them eternal damnation [​IMG]

    From gransnet. I'm not a gran....

    You could, of course, change this to:

    How many OFSTED inspectors does it take to change a lightbulb?
    One to hold the ladder, one to go up the ladder and change the lightbulb and one to grade the other two's performance as Inadequate.

    Actually thinking about it, it possibly works better if you replace the "Inadequate" with "Oustanding".

    No evidence of safeguarding - inadequate.

    :) vote for the first version.

    I think I might have it:

    How many OFSTED inspectors does it take to change a lightbulb?
    One to hold the ladder, one to go up the ladder and change the lightbulb and one to grade these two practitioners.;)

    As you might have gathered, this was off the cuff.:rolleyes:

    Q: Why should all Ofsted inspectors be buried 6ft underground?

    A: Because deep down they are nice people.

    From a TES article...

    A few funnier punch lines might be possible?


    A: To keep them there

    Can anyone improve the punch line?
