Ofsted meeting matters; a collection of blogs

Over the last few months Ofsted has been actively engaging with teachers and governors. Mike Cladingbowl and Sean Harford have held meetings where the discussion has been open and frank. The people attending these meetings have blogged about what was discussed. I thought it would be a good idea to collate these blogs so if anyone was interested in reading them they would be able to find them all in one place. The following is a list of these blogs. I will add other blogs to the list as and when they are published.

Tom Sherrington
David Didau
 Ross McGill
Tom Bennet
Shena Lewington
Andrew Old
Naureen Khalid
Cherryl Kd
Stephen Tierney
Chris McDonald

Jack Marwood

It is clear from reading these posts that Mike Cladingbowl is sincere in his wish to work alongside school leaders. Think back to this time last year and these meetings would not have seemed possible. Whether you think that the changes we have seen are down to these meetings or not, you have to accept that these meetings do represent a clear desire to engage. There have been some comments that these meetings should involve a wider range of people.  I personally think we that we should welcome these, the first such efforts at engagement. I’m sure that these meetings will continue and involve people other than those on Twitter but until then these meetings and the resulting blogs are a very good way of starting a dialogue and getting the message out.
