In a world filled with negativity and criticism, we must continue to work together and put the things that matter first. We must work together to ensure that not only our school is a successful, thriving, learning community but every school has the support, encouragement and the toolkit to become a brilliant school and every child has the teaching, coaching and opportunity to become a brilliant learner!
Sad then that, in many authorities, where OFSTED rules, coaching, learning and professional development, based on what works, has been put on the back-burner. Sad then that in many authorities, where OFSTED rules, colleagues don't know where to find the support they need and for a lot of them don't necessarily understand/think they need it especially in a world where money is tight and with teachers/teaching being promoted as the answer to life, the universe and everything! Sad then that in many authorities, where OFSTED rules, there is also a lack the experience associated with good quality assurance and the ability to moderate judgements about what is great, what isn't and importantly what to do about it.
