England’s schools have reached crisis point, with DfE policies and Ofsted’s inspection methods the culprit

Many people are tired of the mainstream system, for many years now. We can see evidence of this in just how many different types of schools are surfacing in the last few years. People are desperately seeking other types of education. Within my own community people say the OFSTED grading doesn’t mean anything anyway moreover they prefer a good school over an outstanding school because to them it means the school has spent less time box taking more time focusing on the children. 

I don’t agree that it just means more inspections. I think it’s essential that OFSTED move with the times. If OFSTED could broaden their horizons and articulate just how some of the different types of education are benefiting children then perhaps it would highlight more what the mainstream is not offering. Then perhaps some groundbreaking changes could start to be made within the mainstream curriculum to update it. Read the article here:
