Heads and middle leaders who have managed to show their school off in the best possible light share their top tips for making your inspection an opportunity rather than a threat.

Writing an incisive SEF that exemplifies your spiralling success and which demonstrates your capacity for improvement is still essential for gaining an 'outstanding' result.This book will help prepare you and your staff to be confident and impressive in every lesson visited by the inspection team and will empower your senior leaders and governors to demonstrate outstanding leadership. Written in Jackie Beere's pragmatic style with a wealth of practical advice from many contributors this book will deliver the essential tips for making inspection work for your school.
