Ofsted inspections are neither impartial nor useful to a school. We do not claim that all the teachers are excellent, but most of the pupils, most of the time, get a good education. Ofsted itself says "81 per cent of lessons are satisfactory or better".
The continued Ofsted regime of terror in our schools is doing nothing for the education of our children. In fact it is pushing more and more teachers over the brink into early retirement, ill health or, like Mr McMahon, plain resignation. When will these people at the DFEE and LEA stop talking and start listening?
