14th Ofsted Deep Dive – Starts at 1pm and finishes at 3pm (Delivered by Sue Nicholls)  Some feedback:

I just wanted to say thank you so much for organising the training session on Ofsted Deep Dives. It was such a useful session and I gained so much from it. I thought Sue presented brilliantly and was really engaging and informative. Following the training, I feel much more confident about what we as a school need to work on and what Ofsted are looking for. I am now slightly less anxious about a potential visit and feel much more prepared if they do deep dive on Music! Thanks again”, – Gemma, Abbey Meads.
