As they announce plans to inspect all outstanding schools Ofsted inspections for top-rated schools to be reinstated https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-49540258 Beware that of the outstanding schools inspected last year, 80% didn’t retain their grade. No new money for ofsted so that means a break for the rest of you in good schools. But the rule goes in MATs that if you lose your ofsted grade you lose your job. Then a new Head comes in and starts smashing everything up. Then churn happens. Then the school is brokered to a new chain which imposes crazy zero tolerance rules and has an ultra young workforce. It really sounds like a great plan doesn’t it? Just remove ofsted grading and automatically downgrade every outstanding school to good enough and it’s a cheap and easy fix. But that would not allow MAT CEOs to make money in the chaos. You’d think the people in charge only care about money rather than education wouldn’t you?
