Thanks both. I feel really sorry for the teachers, and feel it's just unfair. Watching a class of children a week from breaking up in 32 degree heat is totally different to a few weeks into the Autumn term isn't it?
They also have visiting children from the First School doing their 'move up' activity days.
Surely every teacher knows the result of their inspection as soon as the HT has had feedback on the last day? I've known all ours and all my friends in schools have known their school results...despite the embargo.
sparkling usual procedure is that the school (ie HT and at least Chair of Govs, possibly other govs) will be told at the closing feedback meeting. The result is strictly confidential until the official report is published.
Sparkling, the school almost certainly know but they won't be saying. Was this the middle school or the high school? (the middle school was done earlier this term/last term I think, so am assuming the high school)
