5.0 out of 5 stars Jackie Beere gets an "Outstanding' from me ! 30 April 2012
Format:Hardcover
Jackie Beere's `The Perfect Ofsted Inspection 2012 Framework' gets an `Outstanding' grade from me. Her wonderful style of writing along with professional and practical approach to helping and supporting schools `get it right', is indeed an enjoyable and thought provoking read.

She has brilliantly set out each section so that it can be used as it's own framework to get Communities of Learners and Leadership in Education to think strategically as well as creatively about assessing and reviewing `where they are' in preparation for an Inspection. However, I see this book as a Bible for effective Learning & Teaching, Management & Leadership as well as including Learners, Parents & Governors alike.

Each Chapter has some wonderul `Tips and Tools' for developing outstanding practice and let it be known that her `words of wisdom' can have an overwhelming impact on the Learning & Teaching in your own classrooms - I have done it myself - and proof is in the pudding.

This is NOT JUST a book for `The Perfect Ofsted Inspection' but a brilliant book that every educationalist should use and implement in order to ensure that our Learners get the best, creative and most thought provoking education we can deliver in the 21st Century.
Jackie Beere hits the high notes once again - to you I say `Thank you'.

2.0 out of 5 stars Requires improvement 14 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover
Disappointing as mainly secondary directed although this was not made clear in blurb. Very basic and needs updating as not really current with 2012 framework at all .

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, Practical, Perceptive. 23 April 2012
Format:Hardcover
'The Perfect Ofsted Inspection' is a powerful, practical and perceptive guide that will help to ensure that your school is indisputably outstanding. Compelling insights from the author and constructive case studies demonstrate how to know exactly the strengths and weaknesses of your school and what everyone can do to address them.

Jackie's witty and assertive style, commonsense strategies and to-the-point checklists give rise to an essential companion for professionals at all levels in education who aspire to 'get it right' in inspection (by first getting it right for their students).

Mapped against the 2012 Ofsted Inspection Framework, Jackie walks the reader apace through embedding your vision, learning in lessons and the inspection process itself. Simple, but not simplistic, this book sets out what is really needed for a school to be genuinely outstanding. Not for the sake of inspection (which is a bonus) but to ensure better outcomes for all learners at all times.

If yours is a good school on the journey to becoming outstanding - or an outstanding school on the journey to becoming world class - then The Perfect Ofsted Inspection is the book for you.

This really helps to develop good teaching and learning rather than do different lessons for an Ofsted inspection. It will help develop yours.

A really interesting and easy to read book but it has to be said aimed at Senior Team or at least Subject Leaders as much of the suggested action would need to come from them.
