It is a surprise to read that some senior inspectors are speaking out about Ofsted’s plans to visit schools this term.
Perhaps they feel inspecting during COVID would be one step too far? Time for some much needed reform. #pauseOfsted
“We are not surprised to hear that some inspectors have misgivings about the planned autumn visits. The rationale for them is a muddle, and they smack of giving Ofsted something to do rather than a coherent policy": my comments for @ASCL_UK: https://buff.ly/3bIUU5E
Thanks for the RT @blondebonce
We must #PauseTests to focus on literal #lifeskills
And we must #PauseOfsted
Our children are the future not data!#HeadsTogether

Time to make a stand. If you are working as an OFSTED inspector, Headteachers' Roundtable recommend that you PAUSE doing inspection work. Stop support...
Spare a thought for teachers/school leaders who have worked tirelessly to improve standards over the last year or so... only to hear that Ofsted has abandoned inspections for the immediate future.
It is time to end the grades.

The science (research) is clear!
Independent teachers work as many hours as state schools teachers, but they have lower stress (Brady, 2020)
State schools in England suffer 'hard accountability' and 'thin theory' for school improvement (Mehta, 2013)
Have long argued that the slowly-growing professional revolt over Ofsted ( #PauseOfsted etc) was a channelled version of Brexity frustrations applied to the structural inequalities of education
The dream is now a reality for @HeadsRoundtable @SabrinaHobbs8. #pauseofsted #scrapehcps :Open season on vulnerable children with no one to answer to.

"Reverse engineering Ofsted algorithms is few headteachers’ favourite game, but it is one in which a large proportion engage and none more so that at the start of a new framework..."

All you #PauseOfsted people - do you feel a sense of awe and wonder that you just asked and a few weeks later, it happened? Even if it was in a very roundabout way and for tragic reasons...Ofsted is now paused.
My mum used to say, be careful what you ask for...
#pauseofsted surely has to have been one of the most successful campaigns ever
