This episode tackles Ofsted school inspections, offering practical advice, tips and anecdotes for primary schools – including on subject deep dives – to help you thrive when the inspectors come calling.

Two experienced headteachers offer a wealth of tips and ideas – big and small – including their tenets of best practice for handling Ofsted from start to finish.

We tackle Ofsted subject deep dives, explaining what they are, how they are working in practice, and how schools can best prepare for them without adding to workload, including practical tips for subject and middle leaders.

We discuss building resilience, handling the emotions and pressure as a school leader, and tactics to help you when things are going wrong.

Other advice covers the 90-minute phone call, things you can prepare in advance, how to support our colleagues, how to protect staff wellbeing, and some top useful tips and anecdotes.
