Ofsted for Governors
Chris Gajewski – School Improvement Consultant
Chris Gajewski has had a broad range of experience within schools and local authorities nationally as a head teacher, school improvement partner and adviser. He is currently working as a freelance school improvement consultant and is also a lead assessor for the ‘Challenge Award’ which involves him assessing good and outstanding primary and secondary schools throughout the country to review the on-going quality or provision by observing learning, scrutinising work, interviewing staff, parents, governors and pupils and reviewing a broad range of evidence. His work is highly regarded by schools as he quickly establishes positive and effective working relationships through honest challenge and measured professional support.
Governors and Ofsted
This session will serve to update governors on the Ofsted framework and the inspection process. There will be opportunities to reflect on how school self-evaluation judgements are made, and how these may be validated. Questions for governors to ask to support the school in preparation for Ofsted will be explored and examples will be provided. There will be an opportunity to review governance judgements within a range of recent Ofsted reports and there will also be an opportunity to reflect on the questions you may ask about a broad range of aspects of school life and performance. Support for the creation of a 'pen portrait' of the key components which you may use to support and inform your response to the Ofsted interview will also be provided.
