From the Tes Com­mu­nity fo­rums

TES (Times Education Supplement) - - FEEDBACK YOU SAY -

Teach­ers more crit­i­cal of Of­sted the longer they have been in the job, sur­vey finds (­st­ed­crit­ics)

Ev­ery­one, from politi­cians to par­ents, uses Of­sted as a blunt tool to judge schools with. We could ar­gue how the ‘tool’ could be more ac­cu­rate, but when it is wielded as a weapon, it makes lit­tle dif­fer­ence if it’s an axe or a sledge­ham­mer.


Our lat­est two Of­sted in­spec­tions were dread­ful, with inac­cu­rate re­port­ing of sta­tis­tics, rude­ness to staff, etc. It’s hard to imag­ine a group of peo­ple less welle­quipped to judge a school.


Of­sted are bad enough, but the way some heads make it Of­sted every day, just in case, is to­tally ridicu­lous.
