Posted by the inspectors brother, on his Facebook profile, the audit summary sheet has received over 6000 shares.
There’s no doubt that at a time where thousands of parents are attempting to continue some sort of education in the wake of schools closing due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this report is resonating.
It comes as a reassurance to parents that despite their best efforts, even education professionals, such as Ofsted inspectors, are finding the challenge difficult.
The audit says:
School leaders have ensured that the schools overall effectiveness has tanked since the last exception.
Pupils enjoy learning. They just don’t enjoy lessons. Except making a game where they throw a ball into various cardboard boxes. That one seems to have caught on, at least.
The Key Stage 2 pupil who was recently caught playing Fortnite and claimed it was a Geography project. He was excluded for 2 weeks.
The message we can get from this fantastic Ofsted report is that we’re all doing the best we can… and that’s all we can do. So hang in there.

Remember that this is home-learning, not home-schooling. Utilise everyday life as learning opportunities and don’t worry too much about structured learning time.
