Teachers welcome inspection and observation in school
An independent survey of teachers’ views on Ofsted’s inspections of schools has found that almost 90% of teachers think that inspection helps their schools set new priorities for the future. 84% think it is important that their lessons are observed by inspectors.
The survey, conducted by the National Foundation for Educational Research, also found that 85% of teachers agreed that inspection led to improvements in teaching and learning. In addition, teachers said they were overwhelmingly in favour of pupils being consulted as part of the inspection and being informed about its findings.
