Product description

A revised and updated version of Jackie Beere's best-selling The Perfect (Ofsted) Lesson ISBN 9781845904609 How to make that whole school inspection practically perfect in every way. What is it that makes a 'good' school an 'outstanding' one? What are the inspectors looking for? What is it that the outstanding schools do that catches the Ofsted inspector's eye? To answer these questions, Jackie has combined her extensive experience in education with research done in schools recently awarded that 'outstanding' gold star. This book shares her findings in a practical, down-to-earth way that is as much about worldclass quality in teaching and learning as it is about surviving an inspection. With it, you can be confident of revealing your school in the best possible light and, who knows, you may even enjoy the process.

Wow. What a book! Normally, I put educational reading at the bottom of my to-do list but this held my attention from the front through to the back. I loved the way it was set out in steps, with very useful strategies at each step. The strategies are varied and do work. It has quality educational research behind it but is written in a very accessible style. It is a must for every teacher.The title is such a winner and the content really does deliver what it says on the cover.Glen Alexander, Deputy Head Teacher, Archbishop Ilsley Catholic Technology College I found this book to be a super read with practical advice and strategies which all teachers, regardless of where they are in their career, can use in their next lesson. Jackie demystifies what makes that elusive outstanding lessonfor Ofsted into a really positive experience for both students and teachers.We will certainly be using it as a resource to further develop learning and teaching in our school.Ranjit Samra, Head of Southam College A concise practical approach to delivering the perfect Ofsted lesson - the book builds upon the key characteristics of an outstanding lesson, giving practical ideas of how it can be achieved and, more importantly, how this can be demonstrated in a short time to Ofsted inspectors. The format is clear and accessible and gives useful points for debate and discussion amongst teachers. This book is for all teachers whether new to teaching or an experienced practitioner - it acts as an aide memoire for all to reflect on their practice.Julie Summerfield, Head Teacher of Horndean School The Perfect Ofsted Lesson picks up all the key Ofsted related points as regards an outstanding lesson.
