Halloween horror: How not to fear Ofsted
It’s the scariest time of year – but forget ghouls and goblins, for most schools there’s nothing scarier than the prospect of a visit from Ofsted. That’s if your school doesn’t have Earwig.
At Earwig we are able to boast that not a single one of our schools has ever been downgraded since using Earwig. Yes, since we founded in 2012, all Earwig schools, of any grade, either retained their grading or were upgraded.
In fact even some Outstanding schools have achieved an upgrade – both Vranch School in Exeter and Mary Rose School in Portsmouth were awarded ‘Outstanding All Areas’. In both cases, the inspector’s report was particularly enthusiastic about the quality of the assessment process and the teaching evidence provided.
By using Earwig, which saves evidence in real time, provides quick and accurate assessment tools and produces any reporting or tracking instantly – Ofsted inspections need no longer be feared
