    I managed to have two inspections last year, one, part of the chaos with me teaching 16 hours a week.
    Then the ever so lovely peace and quiet of the ICT support team in my new job. I know which I prefer

    It's really not a nice feeling, so I have a lot of sympathy for teachers as long as they remember their manners

    And its good because our office is at the back of an IT suite. You have to go through the classroom to get out. We wouldn't leave the office, as most of the team the teachers would be 'inspected'.

    Perfect excuse!

    Ofsted should be random, I think, in some cases it's unrepresentative.

    I did find out that... kids know that when a stranger walks into a room, that person might be there to judge their teacher - If the kids like their teacher, they'll behave - even if they don't normally, if they don't... it can get worse.

    I hear that! We have Ofsted in today and tomorrow too (seems to be a theme here...) and this seemed to be the day of lets report all the computing problems we havnt mentioned for months. Also lots of sudden emergency requests like setting up projector for assembly and suchlike.

    Would say I'll be glad when Friday comes, but my boss will be at BETT on that day and I've got BT coming in for 'cabling work' on our broadband upgrade. Think its time to go back to stacking shelves!
