An Inspector Calls?

Steve Munday was around most of Thursday as we had a visit from a DfE Educational Advisor, Rob Briscoe, to look at the progress the school is making. Many of the students now know Steve Munday, and recognise that he is a regular visitor to the school, and indeed helped out with duties yesterday during the dreadful weather at break time. Amusingly, one of the students asked Steve Munday whether he was the inspector. Interestingly, I hadn’t even referred to Rob Briscoe’s visit as an inspection, so it’s fascinating how students translate everything into inspections and inspectors. Part of me hopes that this is just the high quality teaching of “An Inspector Calls”, but I suspect it is more the reality of culture of inspection that exists in the system now compared to when I first joined the profession.
