Hi don't know if this should be in the AIBU section but I had my first ever inspection from OFSTED today as I have only minded for about 4 months. Any way the lady was lovely and I got an outstanding grade but when I told my family and friends they didn't seem at all bothered. Thought I would come on here and share with all of you instead as they don't show interest.

Well CONGRATS and well done on your hard work

But your MN name is a tad dull and if you changed it to OFSTEDOUTSTANDING you would get more attention


morningpaper · 03/05/2007 20:25

go on do it


rantinghousewife · 03/05/2007 20:26

Well done you! We will expect to see you in the CM Staff Room with champaigne & truffles in the morning. We might even let you sit in the special armchair. (The one without the dodgey spring and highly flamable foam poking out the side!)

Not to rain on your parade, because we are very proud of you, but has anyone else got an outstanding? [Maureen looks sadly at her satisfactory]


MaureenMLove · 03/05/2007 21:50

BTW I got satisfatory because the bloody woman came during the summer holidays and I didn't have any kids to show her!!


Katymac · 03/05/2007 22:22

I'm not bothered to be honest! All my parents are very happy with me and all the children are happy. I have a very good relationship with all of them and get all my work through recommendation. I have been full consantly for 10 years!

And when I told my parents I was only satisfactory, they bought me flowers and the kids made me a badge saying 'Best CM' - can't get a higher accolaid than that imo!


looneytune · 04/05/2007 11:40

Well done


OFSTEDoutstanding · 04/05/2007 12:09

Thanks everone for your kind words was nice to be able to tell people that understood! MaureenMLove take no notice of the satisfactory that wasnt fair the most important thing imo is that the kids and parents are happy because its not OFSTED that have to be looked after by you!


MaureenMLove · 04/05/2007 12:29

Absolutely! They're luckly to have me! come and join the staff room later. We've got a special VIP area for the outstandings and someones got parsnip crisps. We did have cookies that I made with mindee1 earlier, but I think they're all gone now!

MaureenMLove · 04/05/2007 14:39

[maureen sulks - another chair in the vip area then] Well done though!
