Golly, thanks for that Floreat. Quite an eye opener!
The question is, given the school and given the inspectorate, is this a reflection on the school or is it a reflection on Ofsted?
Ofsted may well get it wrong some of the time, particularly on subjective matters, so I suppose the answer to that depends on whether parents are cavalier enough to disregard - as the school seems to have, based on the published report of the follow up visit - the importance of increasing a child's chances of surviving a fire to the threshold of the minimum legal requirements, the peace of mind that comes with knowing that safeguarding and staff vetting procedures exist and are adequate, that performance management processes are in operation, that academic standards are acceptable, etc.
I know nothing about the school other than what has been published, but on that basis I can also see how the school might have a distinctive appeal to parents who may wish their well-behaved children in lovely uniforms to see nepotism as an acceptable world view. At least the Ofsted report documents an extraordinary amount of nepotism at management level: http://reports.ofsted.gov.uk/inspection ... ELS/100518
Parents with children already at the school may have experienced some positives that Ofsted didn't notice, but in my humble opinion
it's hard to see how those who have no skin in the game would volunteer at the moment.
