From Requires Improvement to OUTSTANDING!

We were delighted to hear from an Inspection Coach School in Liverpool that has just been judged as Outstanding by Ofsted. Ken Heaton, the headteacher of Florence Melly Community Primary School got in touch to tell us;

“I think that your software helped us to go from RI to Outstanding, and you can quote me on that!”

Well done to Ken and his team from everyone here at 2Eskimos, we are absolutely delighted that your lovely school was given the judgement that it deserves.
If anyone else has feedback from OFSTED about your use of Inspection Coach please get in touch.

Eeeek – the New Ofsted Inspection Framework is coming!

Amanda Spielman’s ambition for the new inspection framework is that it has “substance and integrity” @amanda_spielman .

To be fair, almost very headteacher that I have spoken to has encouraging things to say about the new draft framework. I know for sure that our main authority on this; Clive Davies O.B.E @CliveDaviesOBE sees this new framework as potentially having a genuinely positive impact.

So if you had to summarise 5 key points from the framework what would yours be?

Here’s mine:

  • The 4 categories remain the same
  • Teacher workload to be acknowledged
  • There are now only 4 judgement categories
  • The Curriculum must be broad and balanced
  • Impact will be judged by nationally generated performance data

Send us your thoughts we would love to hear them!
