Ofsted any minute!

Post by Bookworm on Thu Oct 11, 2012 10:02 pm

affraid very affraid lol

I am a hlta (in my second year as a hlta) in a primary school and cover ppa and nqt time pretty much everyday. I have been through ofsted twice before as a 1:1 but never as a hlta and am absolutely terrified. I don't want to air my worries too much as I don't want to appear as weak but I really don't want to let my school and colleagues down! It's inevitable that I will be watched and my nerves will get the better of me! Anybody else ever felt this way or am I just weird?
Lol

Welcome to the mad house !

I think there are many of us on here who have been observed during Ofsted,I was working in a small school (2 classes) so had Mr Ofsted as my shadow most of the day (well thats how it felt !) he was really nice and very supportive (infact its because of him im now a full time hons degree student at uni ) I was very nervous to start with but as I was busy with the children I didnt really notice him after a while .
He was in all my lessons,my whole school assembly and out with me for my playground duty !!
I know its different according to person and school etc but Im sure you will be fine ,just do your job and he/she will see how good you are !!!
Good luck and let us know how it goes Rolling Eyes

I have been observed numerous times by ofsted but only once as a HLTA it is extremely nervewracking and you would not be human without you may not be observed under the new framework as they are really concentrating on lit, numeracy and reading. During ofsted my school usually have the teachers teaching and defer ppa although I usually end up teaching somewhere!!!

It was mentioned that we would not do ppa etc on ofsted days but some 'clever' teachers convinced the HT that it would not be showing us in a true light! I'm split on this as I felt that the HT may have been implying we weren't good enough to be seen and I took offence to this, but I'd rather we weren't lol! Or he is aware of how terrified we are!
I so hope they will not want to see us and will indeed focus on the teaching of numeracy and literacy!
I will keep you posted when they arrive! Very Happy

Yes I was always told the teachers would do their classes regardless when OFSTED come calling and quite happy for them too lols, been observed tons of times as one to one and group work. New framework means it is a bit tougher

In the small school i worked at we all ended up being observed (some more than others !)
I ran a before school club (observed )
1st lesson(observed )
My assembly (observed !!!!)
My palyground duty (observed )
Actually we were really lucky with our inspector as he was soooo nice,and by the time it got to my playground duty we were chatting away as though we were friends !
Mind you i do have a fond memory of him as it was him who told me I should be a teacher etc etc
I think if you know what you are doing and enjoy your job then it shows in how you are within the classroom etc .Have to say I was VERY relieved when the 2 days were over (back in 2009)
