Pupils at Thomas Alleyne's...

Two Ofsted inspectors return to schools they've already inspected to give teachers tips on how they can take more risks in the classroom, in this whole-school video for secondary schools.
The inspection process has changed dramatically and now concentrates on senior management teams and their self-evaluation. But inspectors want to see teachers being more imaginative and adventurous.
At Chosen Hill, a specialist technology school on the outskirts of Gloucester, a Maths teacher tries out a lesson about graphs with a Year 7 class. Unusually, three-quarters of the lesson is spent on a practical activity. The inspector's verdict is surprising.
At Walton High in Milton Keynes, newly qualified teachers (NQTs) talk openly about their experiences and a Year 9 science class ends with a rowdy plenary, but it gets top marks from the watching inspector.
