Secondary Headteacher Mary is preparing for her interview with the inspector, under the new OFSTED focus on the curriculum.
“What does your school teach about Colombia, in which subject, and to which year group?”
“How have you sequenced your teaching on Colombia to match what was taught in Primary School. How are you integrating this topic in Art & PSHE, and how many children have been on a field trip to Colombia?”
Mary was longing for the good old days when all she had to do was talk about the target data that OFSTED had already looked at before they arrived, and had used to determine her school’s OFSTED grade.
Now, one wrong answer means SPECIAL MEASURES!
