We get some answers on secondary whole school inspections Four secondary headteachers get the chance to grill top HMI Harmer Parr about Ofsted’s ‘Section 5’ inspection and what it means for secondary managers. Issues of ‘how much to reveal?’, ‘how to be outstanding?’, self- evaluation, providing evidence, as well as leadership concerns are put directly to the Inspector.
With the Section 5 regime well under way there are still many on the front line with questions and concerns and this opportunity to interrogate the inspectors is a valuable resource for all secondary headteachers, governors and teachers.
