If your school or college has been subject to a standard inspection by Ofsted since the new year we'd like to hear about your experiences.
ATL wants to celebrate the good quality features of Ofsted inspections whilst offering a 'notice to improve' when Ofsted fails schools and fails school staff, pupils, and communities.
ATL believes that school accountability is important, but that Ofsted school inspections are wrong. As part of work to develop an alternative, we want to talk to you to identify the good traits in current inspection practice, outline how education professionals wish to be held accountable, and detail some principles which should inform any changes to the way in which education provision is inspected in England.
With a new inspection regime recently introduced ATL want members who've been subject to inspection recently to have their say and share their experiences.
Alternatively, please contact the survey team using this contact form.
Ofsted case study
Members in a south London secondary school which had recently been subject to an Ofsted inspection recently got together to talk about their experiences and the ways in which they think teacher and school accountability could be made more legitimate to a profession weary and exhausted from constant change.
