School achieves ‘Outstanding’ following PBM’s Inspection Skills course

We would like to extend our congratulations to Wren Spinney Community Special School who recently achieved Outstanding in their Ofsted inspection. Senior assistant headteacher Ian Haimes attended the PBM Inspection Skills for Headteachers training in January and had this to say about the course and how it helped them to prepare for inspection.

“I attended the 3 day ‘Inspection Skills For Headteachers’ course in January 2014 as we were  due an Ofsted Inspection at any time and I wanted to ensure our school was as ready as we could be, and that I was ready, too! This course covered everything you should know as you prepare for inspection, but made the (previously) daunting prospect really straightforward and uncomplicated. What I found especially helpful was how to present what you know you are doing well in a format Ofsted can easily understand and not have to go searching for. Things like the school self-evaluation, pupil case studies and data were presented so clearly, we just couldn’t go wrong! I knew we were at least a ‘Good’ school, and probably borderline ‘Outstanding’. The course helped me to highlight our strengths and to make clear what we were doing to address any areas that weren’t so strong. I am delighted to say we got ‘Outstanding’ in every area of the Ofsted report and it is without a doubt that this course gave me the knowledge, skills and confidence to present the school in the best way we could. Thank you.”
