OFSTED – wearing a badge and putting it in perspective 

 

On Twitter this morning and this tweet caught my eye. Now, let me put this post in perspective and be clear what it is not:

  • It is not a side swipe at SLTchat and those who organise it.
  • It is not a side swipe at OFSTED

Great, so why bother writing it then? Ok fair point – having a side swipe at something usually drives up hits but my point is more to do with our desire to give people who work for one organisation a voice to share their view on education matters over another. I am as guilty as anybody else and when I have approached OFSTED and asked somebody to speak to a conference or to my governing body they have always been most obliging, engaging and generous with their time. 

Does it point to our desire to know what those who inspect are thinking rather than following? Why does Mrs Miggins talking about mathematics say have less interest than Mrs Miggins, Lead Inspector, talking about mathematics and does this matter? 

All that said, I’ll try and tune in to SLTchat tonight.
