Tales from an inner city school governor

Governor training days

Recently I attended a training course entitled "Preparing for Ofsted". We are due an inspection any day now, and have quite a few governors who are new this year, so it was a good topic to study.

I read the SEF* like a good governor, and showed up to the training expecting to be lectured on knowing the school's vital statistics, its strengths and weaknesses, and our role in visiting the school, especially for link governors.

However, the exercises were all about communicating with each other - things such as telling three facts to the others, two truths and a lie - and just as I was wondering if I was in the wrong room, the trainer finally said "But what has this got to do with Ofsted?"

We were shown some more techniques which might be useful in brainstorming and problem solving, all useful stuff but I'm not sure how it will help if I am chosen to be interviewed by the inspectors! The only thing that came out of this for me is that I am better at lying than I thought...





* Note for non-governors - This is the Self-Evaluation Form, which is written by Governors and Head together. It's a living document about the schools's situation.

  • He never smiled, he never frowned, he never changed his voice from the gentle-flowing key to which he tuned his initial sentence, he never betrayed the slightest suspicion of enthusiasm; but all through the interminable narrative there ran a vein of impressive earnestness and sincerity, which showed me plainly that, so far from his imagining that there was cyclobenzaprine anything ridiculous or funny about his story, he regarded it as a really important matter, and admired its two heroes as men of transcendent genius in finesse.. In order to disguise her wish she had spironolactone obviously selected a situation in which wishes of that sort are commonly suppressed--a situation which is so filled with sorrow that love is not thought of..

And even if a dream of different content had the significance of this offense against majesty, it would still have cialis been in place to remember the words of Plato, that the virtuous man contents himself with dreaming that which the wicked man does in actual life.. I could not wonder that the vicodin noble heart of devotion was broken, for it had dashed itself against a stone...

Some of the young department clerks would often string him, as they called it, getting him started upon the subject dearest to him--the traditions and history http://startso11.info/Irena+Pfeiffer.html of his beloved Southland.. Jacobus, on the other side of the grape-trellis, looked at--I don't know http://startso11.info/www.p.pllob+i..franklin.pl.html what--and was as silent as we were..

Nor must we overlook the http://startso11.info/forum.gazeta.pl%2Fforum%2F71%2C1.html%3Ff%3D33793.html absurdity of the dream that two persons should take three tickets for the theater..

We attempt to remove this symptom by urging him to http://startso11.info/www.bibliomania.uk.html the action which he deems himself incapable of.. A different explanation was found in the case of a similar dream of another female patient, who was distinguished in her earlier years by her quick wit and her cheerful demeanors and who still showed these qualities at least in the notion, which occurred to her in the course http://storyah44.info/programy+do+%C5%9Bci%C4%85gni%C4%99cia.html of treatment.. Thus it would appear that all wishes are of the http://startso11.info/www.googler.pl.html same value and force for the dream formation..
