    That's just stupid! The school cares more about sucking up to OFSTED than your grades. How much I detest this system is beyond words!
    On the other hand, OFSTED putting our school on Special Measures made the teachers and the pupils man the **** up until we got out of there. I think its important to appreciate how OFSTED often increases the progress and efforts made by schools to improve their level of education.

    To contrast, my school was told by OFSTED to pick up their **** with MFL.

    Look how that turned out
    It's awful, I really hate how such important subjects are totally disregarded.

    That's good for your school, and OFSTED does do some good, but from what I've seen, it is mostly negative. Though obviously I don't know what goes on behind the scenes.

    To be fair, it is getting better. Before, they had like a week or something ridiculous like that! I still want them to have no notification until about an hour or two before they arrive or something.

    Still, it's not good enough - at 3:25pm today they had an emergency assembly for year 11s (and one for every year for about an hour prior) bsically telling people what to do as they found out at 1pm and they are freaking out

    They should turn up, and be like 'Hi I'm from OFSTED." and school would be like :eek: :ahhhhh:

    I know, it needs to go further, but it's a step in the right direction at least. It shouldn't even need a warning, (obviously except so that OFSTED don't turn up while the school's burning down or something! So, they should have a warning, but only a few hours or something!) OFSTED want to see the real school, not the fake one to make them look good.

    It should do what Matt suggested. My school is good enough so they should calm the fook down instead of actling like vaginas.

    That's actually what they should do, it would show the school how it normally is, not how it looks like dressed up!

    The schools may get a lower rating, but at least it's actually what the school's like. How are they supposed to improve if they dress up every time someone wants to see how to improve them!

    He said he was upset... and he's going to start forgetting our birthdays
    Worst thing is people at his work remembered it was his birthday and his own family didn't

    I don't think he took it too seriously though...
