Ofsted hits back against schools ‘narrowing education’

According to TES, under-fire chief inspector expected to warn against ‘hollow’ grades as she launches Ofsted annual report amid GCSEs row with leading MATs.

Amanda Spielman is expected to warn that she will not turn a “blind-eye” to schools “narrowing the curriculum” as she launches her third annual report as Ofsted’s chief inspector this morning.

Her comments are a clear rebuke to the leaders of two influential academy chains who have complained about Ofsted’s new school inspection framework and its crackdown on three year GCSE courses.

The annual report will look at the performance of schools in 2018-19 and what Ofsted identifies as key issues in early years, schools, further education and children’s social care.
