Let Teachers Teach
Join our campaign to create a new approach to school and college evaluation which is supportive, effective and fair.
As Ofsted approaches its 30-year anniversary, now is the right time to examine what effect its inspections have on the quality of education that teachers and leaders are able to provide and, in particular, for our most disadvantaged pupils.
School inspection must be fair. It should be supportive. It should not be, as too many Ofsted inspections are, punitive.
We must create a new approach to school and college evaluation which is effective and fair.
