A routine school staff meeting draws to a close. The school is due a short-notice OFSTED Inspection which could happen anytime. The anxious headteacher demands that everyone and everything is prepared, and her anxiety is transferred to the staff, both teaching and non-teaching. When notification arrives, well, anyone can make a mistake!
Everyone has been to school, so everyone knows about OFSTED and their dreaded school inspections. Visit a local primary school where an inspection is expected any day. This constant readiness affects everyone, including a troglodyte caretaker, and when notification arrives via an email, a simple mistake by the school secretary has unforeseen consequences.
