Taking Risks with Ofsted

Description

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.
