    Are you convinced by the new inspections and will it really change the way you think about the inspectorate? A senior Ofsted director seems to think so:

    ‘A senior Ofsted director has said he hopes the regulator's new school inspections, which place less emphasis on exam and test results, will change the way people think about the inspectorate.

    Chris Jones, Ofsted’s director of corporate strategy, told Tes he hoped the new framework and its quality-of-education grade would make inspection "more valuable to those on the receiving end".

    His comments came as the inspectorate’s own annual teacher survey revealed that fewer than a fifth of teachers regard Ofsted as a trusted and reliable arbiter of standards.’
