Ofsted at GFS

Screen Shot 2014-05-11 at 19.55.17

In February, Greenwich Free School received its first Ofsted inspection.  It was not a success.

My take on the inspection:
Part I introduced the inspection.
Part II discussed my experience of inspection as a teacher and middle leader.
Part III considered the accuracy of the report for the school more broadly.
Part IV raised five questions which inspection has left me with.
Part V looked at what happened after the Inspection.
What have I learned from writing about Ofsted? reflected on the experience.

Other takes on the inspection:
The Ofsted report.
The school’s response.
My colleague Will Lau’s account.
The school’s Parent View.
