This half term … make Ofsted the last thing on your mind
This half term, take a load off … your mind by making a small change that will mean you will never worry about your next Ofsted inspection again.
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 Outstanding schools were able to shoot for a small upgrade – they can be awarded ‘Outstanding All Areas’, which is what happened to the Vranch School in Exeter. The same thing happened to Mary Rose School in Portsmouth. Their big inspection wasn’t from Ofsted but from Challenge Partners. But the result was the same.
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.
