OFSTED Report

OFSTED Annual report came out today, and a few stories came my way. Nothing specifically geographical yet, but relevant for any geographer.

Some interesting comments on the East of England though, which has had quite a focus of attention this year. Some counties are quite low down the list of those areas where secondary students are in a school that is good or outstanding. Interesting to see the position of Cambridgeshire, where I teach, and how it's changed.
Also this comment on the (obvious) importance of leadership and teaching...


OFSTED is, for all state schools, an inevitable aspect of teaching, but I hope the negative comments at a time when all colleagues are reaching for the end of term and a chance to recharge aren't taken to heart...
