Links/Data: Ofsted’s 2011 annual report and Schools Minister response

The Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted), the education watchdog, has released its annual report and found too many schools are “not pushing children to reach their potential,” says the BBC.

The report is based on more than 31,000 inspections carried out between September 2010 and August 2011. It covers early years and childcare, schools, colleges, adult learning and skills, children’s social care and local authority services for children.

The BBC story put together this sidebar on the report’s main statistics:

PDFs of Ofsted’s full report can be found here. Don’t worry — even though a price is listed for the report, that is for the hard copy version. The PDFs are free.

Schools Minister Nick Gibb gives his comments on sections of the report on the DfE website. That can be accessed here.

Is this something you would like to investigate further? Let us know how we can help.
