This invaluable handbook will equip teachers, subject leaders and the school’s senior leadership team with the tools and know-how to prepare for their next inspection with confidence.
Distilled from Paul Garvey’s 11 years of inspection experience, this practical book builds on its predecessor Taking Control to help schools ready themselves for their crucial next visit from Ofsted. It will help all maintained schools in the UK to prepare for inspection under Ofsted’s 2019 Education Inspection Framework (EIF).
Taking Control II contains many first-hand experiences of inspection under the updated EIF and highlights the methodology of inspection, including ‘Deep Dives’ and the 90-minute phone call, combined with top tips to ensure school leaders get the best out of the assessments for their school. It also provides a range of effective self-evaluation tools to help schools compile a persuasive Self-Evaluation Form (SEF) in order to convince the inspection team of the true quality of the school’s provision and ensure that the school is awarded the deserved grade.
