    We had Ofsted here Wednesday/Thursday. We just passed and for all our hard effort we had Pizza and drinks (Well i had orange and lemonade! I had to drive home!) in the staff room on Friday!

    The funniest part was the build up when the head annouced the school will be staying open till 8pm for teachers to prepare. I had a phone call around 6ish just when the power goes off to all the PC's! lol asking me how could teachers get back on! As I'm at the bottom of the pile in terms of personel I get to hear everything last (Plus our department is the least liked!) my ideas always get passed over!

    Sorry about the ffs rant!

    Seems to be the season for it. WE got the call Friday and have a one day on Wednesday. Both me and NM are tempted to take time in lieu or carry out some major router work

    It is interesting to see the staff running round like headless chickens even though it has been on the cards for us for about 2 and a half years and now that it comes it is only a 1 day so there is no way they are going to swoop on the teachers!

    Ohh well, suppose I can have some BOFH stylee fun and set off some rumours.

    We got the call last week. Inspected tomorrow and wed. Eek! I am getting used to OFSTEDs though now. Over my 4 years in ICT Support at Primary schools this is my 4th Ofsted. Fun and joy to be had by all!

    I don't understand the problem.

    We have Ofsted in today and tomorrow, but it really doesn't matter to me. They don't come and watch me, I've never even been spoken to by them or asked a question.

    The problem is that if a teacher has a bad lesson the blame could come your way, whether it was an IT problem or not.

    And if the IT fails in a lesson that Ofsed are observing then the blame will definately come your way.

    Re: Run For Hills: ofsted Are Coming -

    We had our OFSTED the other week. I found that I was left alone over the two days since the teachers didn't want anything to go wrong, so they avoided using IT - I'm still not sure whether to take that as an insult or not.
