Ofsted school inspections needs radical reform – Angela Rayner

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Education, commenting on the Education and Skills (EDSK) group report on Ofsted, said:

“The current school inspection regime is not fit for purpose and needs radical reform to ensure that it puts the needs of students first.

“This report highlights that the current system is too often unreliable and inconsistent while driving high levels of workload in schools at a time when teachers are already under huge pressure as a result of Tory cuts, with many leaving the profession altogether.

“Labour is committed to reforming our school inspection system as part of a National Education Service for the many, not the few.”
