In September 2005 school inspections changed drastically. The onus is now on the school to highlight its own strengths and weaknesses; to document them convincingly and to show action plans for improvement. This book, written by an Ofsted Inspector, shows you exactly what to do, and how best to present your Self-Evaluation. It also tells you how to prepare for the two day inspection so that everything goes as well as possible.
