Documents In The Resource Box

Each document is presented in Word Format on the rather swish memory card contained within the box so that the resource is easy to carry and use. It acts as a USB and plugs into the port of any computer so that the contents can be easily downloaded or printed.

Booklets – each booklet very simply sets out key information about an aspect of the inspection process and each has been produced so that they can be printed into multiple copies and given to staff and governors to use to prepare them for inspection.

1.   Booklet One.    The Ofsted inspection process

2.   Booklet Two.    How the school is judged

3.   Booklet three.   The Conduct of Inspections

4.   Booklet Four.    Taking Control of Your Inspection

6.   Booklet Six.       Checklists for headteachers

7.   Booklet Seven.  Checklists for safeguarding

8.   Booklet Eight.    Governors Monitoring Strategies

Power Point Presentations: Each Power Point Presentation has been designed for headteachers to lead inset and then the slides print out full size to make a useful handbook for each member of staff or governor to use as a tool to help them prepare for inspection.
