Our guest is Paul K Ainsworth, who has held director of school improvement roles in four multi-academy trusts in the last nine years and in that time has experienced more than 40 Ofsted inspections.

We get Paul’s practical insights – both small ideas and more substantial advice – about how we can protect our mental health and wellbeing, and that of our school team, during inspection.

We get lots of tips for reducing and managing anxiety and hear useful anecdotes from Paul’s experience of inspection.

We hear about what inspection has been like this year in light of changes brought in after the suicide of headteacher Ruth Perry.
