SMART Preparation for Ofsted

How to keep focused and ensure that the inspectors see the ‘real picture’ of your school.

Attending this inset will provide senior leaders with a clear overview of key pieces of
information they need to have readily to hand for when ‘the call’ comes. It will also provide them
with a series of templates and exemplars to enable them to summarise those key pieces of
information and make them ‘reader friendly’ for the Ofsted inspectors.
