No Ofsted - but there were Her Majesty's Inspectors of Schools (as there are now). Schools were inspected, but not routinely, and reports were only shared with the school and local authority.

Im 34 and we didnt have proms, no fines (although my parents were teachers so couldnt go in term time anyway), but there was ofsted.

From the other thread on prom dresses Im shocked at how many parents pay hundreds for a dress, some costing more than my wedding dress. 😳 If this is still a thing when my daughter goes she can have a budget of 50. However I get its the parents choice to spend that much, just not for me.

No prom here (I am 52) small rural school where the headmaster smoked in class !
Secondary school was the blackboard rubber and a piece of hosepipe as punishment but I never heard of anyone who got the pipe it was enough of a deterrent

Im heading towards my 50s and definitely no fines for taking children out of school. But my eldest is 19 and I dont remove the fines coming into force until he was in KS2 so its a recent thing.

I dogged many a board rubber thrown in my direction 😳

Im 46 and nothing when I left school other than shirt signing.

I got hit by the black board rubber once. It was being thrown at the boy in front of me, he ducked and it got me right in the head! I had a massive bruise.

I got smacked and I got the cane 🙈 and I didnt dare tell my mum as she would have given me another smack

We didnt have a prom but we did have a leavers disco. We all got smashed on red witches and I was violently ill and have never been able to even smell Pernod since
Definitely no ofsted - the teachers word was gospel and no body argued with it or questioned them

Im 64 and certainly there were no functions whatsoever when I was in school.
If we were lucky the PTA arranged a coach trip to Bristol Zoo every year.

Like Mick I had my fair share of blackboard rubbers slung at me by the psychopath teachers and got battered regularly.

I dont think there was a leaving doo at 16 because I was told not to attend any more from age15 and was working on the buildings by 16
