Responding to inspection outcome figures, Lord Hill, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Schools, said:
With almost half of schools inspected since September judged as only satisfactory or inadequate, it’s clear there is urgent need for real reform. We need to create more excellent schools and drive up standards across the board - and that’s exactly what our academy proposals will help to do. We also intend to reform the inspection regime so that Ofsted’s expertise is more targeted on the weakest schools.
