Got 'the call'. Ofsted this week.
Just found out we've got Ofsted in Weds/Thurs.
Been working my butt off the last few weeks, as we knew they'd be here this term, to make sure as much is working as possible.
Time for a couple of quiet days I think! Usually what happens when Ofsted are in.

Best of luck, just dont fall for the "its urgent" or it hasnt worked in ages requests.

Have fun! Make sure you have all your documentation straight - you'll probably be interviewed (if your the NM)!!

If it is urgent, do not do it, because everything will come under the its urgent list. I learnt that the hard way. Teachers should report any errors as they occur, not when they need it desperately for OFSTED. Staff here now know to log it properly! lol

Ah, typical. Got my first couple of annoying things that shouldn't happen to deal with.
1. Iffy switch
2. Running out of IP addresses in one of the subnets.

Aye, Ofsted haven't didn't so much as sniff at our door when they came a few weeks back. No interest in IT team. All they wanted was Wireless access (made `em sign an AUP agreement first), and a copy of our IT Policies, which were handed over to the head to issue to them on Day One. Never heard anything else from `em.

Why would they need wireless access?? The last lot we had didn't have access, and this lot won't either - they're here to inspect us, not browse the net!

They enter a lot of stuff directly into a web portal now, ours came armed with a 3G Dongle but the signal was poor and it stopped working so ended up with one of them based in my office for half a day to enter the data online in this portal !!!
