5 Education Twiterrati were summoned……to Ofsted Towers!

February 24, 2014

Something very unusual happened last week.  Mike Caldingbowl of Ofsted asked to meet 5 people who blog and tweet on education matters.  A lot has been written about this visit (on lesson observations, grading and Ofsted) and you can read all the details by following this link and this one .   However, for me as a governor, the interesting thing was the fact that a school governor was invited to the discussions and second, that Ofsted were willing to listen!   Wow, is this a first?????   I wonder as to whether Times are a Changing …….or is this a one off?    Let us hope that there are more discussions as I feel the agenda is the same wherever you are in Education – improving the educational opportunities for all children.

Any school governors who have not caught up with the Ofsted discussions on lesson observations and grading then you need to catch up with some reading!
