Inspectors at Ofsted, the education watchdog have found themselves woefully inadequate according to a report published yesterday.
“A data slip-up meant I had to observe myself inspecting myself”, said an inspector who wished to remain anonymous, but was shown in the report to be HMI Tony Ridley, 47.
“At first I thought I was doing quite a good job, but as the inspection went on I found that my quality was slipping due to the inordinate amount of paper-form filling-in I was having to undertake.”
“By the time I got to the end of the inspection period I was shocked to find I had spent three days observing myself in the mirror. I couldn’t, in all honesty, do anything but give myself an inadequate.”
