101 ways to hoodwink the inspectors

22nd July 2011 at 01:00

The best story I heard was about a headteacher who arranged a slap-up lunch with sherry and wine for the inspection team. She supplemented the regular fayre from her own pocket and got the whole bunch of inspectors tiddly. They spent the rest of the afternoon drinking black coffee in the staffroom. That head got so much respect from her staff after the inspection.
