Ofsted Good Practice (in mathematics) Reports

This page gathers into a convenient place some Ofsted reports that we feel are relevant to us as we seek to become a more effective department.

It is assumed that since these reports are published in the public domain it is reasonable to embed them here for convenience and to avoid dead links if Ofsted re-organise their site. We believe this to be in complience with the code Ofsted describe at http://www.ofsted.gov.uk/terms-of-use/copyright. If this is not appropriate to do so, we would invite Ofsted tocontact us and we'll adapt or amend as requested.

Note to colleagues: all documents should be fully cited and the source web address and date of download quoted below them.

Mathematics Made to Measure, Ofsted's May 2012 digest of the state of play in mathematics teaching in England. Although it doesn't technically fall into the 'Good Practice' section, this would be the obvious place to start. This report follows and builds on their earlier publication Understanding the Score from 2008.
