Rosy Red

By helenlinda
My lips are sealed.
Suffice it to say that rosy red apples fits well with the feeling now that Ofsted is over. It has been a gruelling couple of days, and our interview was over an hour with the lead inspector, and my word was he rigorous.
I have never been involved in an Ofsted inspection as a Governor before, and the new Ofsted framework leaves no stones unturned. For those of you who are not familiar with the dreaded word, it is the school inspection team and we get just one day's notice, so it is always a shock when it comes.

My apologies that in my somewhat fraught state of mind I forgot to thank Ray and Richard for generously giving A pair of roses their User Awards. SmileSmileSmileBlushSmileSmileSmileBlushSmileSmileSmile

Thanks for looking

Helen

This really is a stunner, Helen - so beautifully and creatively processed!
I remember the 'O' word well - just so glad I'm out of it now!
I'm pleased your 'ordeal' is over and hope that things went well for you and your school.

As always, I rate your work extremely highly Helen. The amount of skill you employ to deal effectively with the tricky shades of light, texture and colour is tremendous. Anyway, that's enough of me rambling on about your dealings with Ofsted! Your photo's alright I suppose Wink hehe xx
