Ofsted’s 2013-14 Annual Report published

December 12, 2014

Sir Michael Wilshaw, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector (HMCI), launched Ofsted’s annual reports for schools and further education and skills this week.

Launching the report, Sir Michael Wilshaw said that primary school standards are continuing on an impressive upward trajectory – with more than eight in 10 schools now rated at least good.

The overall rate of improvement in secondary schools, however, has stalled. A similar number of secondary schools inspected over the last 12 months improved as declined – while over 50 more secondaries are now in special measures than was the case a year ago.

During the same period, teaching in the further education sector has improved but too many college courses are still not equipping learners with the skills that employers want and the economy needs.
