I trained as a primary school teacher 20+ years ago, starting my career in London and then I taught in a range of schools in the Midlands. In between teaching jobs, I worked as an Ofsted inspector (no hate mail please!), national in-service provider, project manager, writer and editor. I am the teacher without a tongue.

    It would be great not to use stamps, however you have to evidence everything for the big O so we do use them otherwise they would come down on us hard for it. Therefore it doesn’t matter whether you like them or not. Some schools have to use them to pacify Ofsted!

      OfSTED guidance is VERY clear on this. See number 5 here. If your school leaders are asking teachers to stamp evidence of verbal feedback, then they are not up to speed with latest guidance and effectiveness. Challenge it or “move schools” I’d say …
