    These webinars are aimed at those secondary schools that are in the Ofsted window during 2024/2025. Participants will be secondary headteachers accompanied by their chairs of governors.

    • The phone call with the lead inspector to set the scene 
    • Supporting the middle leaders to give a good account of their work 
    • Managing the typical inspection timetable 
    • What to do when it feels as if things are going awry 
    • FAQs. 

    The webinars will be led by a member of the HIAS Secondary Team and will invite input from some headteachers who have recently experienced inspection.
