Omg I have got my very 1st inspection either Tuesday,Thursday or Friday this week and I am terrified :panic:

I feel physically sick!!!!!! I think I have got everything ready (apart from my SEF) I have started it but gave up, the inspector never said I needed to do it??? she just said to have my paperwork ready that I have in place.
Does everyone feel like this before inspection? I really hope she comes tomorrow to get it over and done with :panic: :panic: :panic:
Thank you for reading :)

Good luck, i'm sure you'll be fine. If you havnt done your sef thats fine you don't have to, you just have to show that you reflect on the work you do, so if something hasn't gone quite to plan you change the way you do it. But you can tell her you do this, or have a reflecting folder like some do.
I spoke to a cm at the weekend that didn't do the sef out of principle she told the inspector why she didn't like it, she explained how she reflects on her practice and got outstanding.
Have a quick look on the ofsted websites at the recent reports in your area and see what cm's are being picked up on, and be ready with the answers.
