How can we help all of our schools to succeed, regardless of standing or Ofsted grade?
The type of school a pupil attends has little bearing on the overall outcomes of a school.
I'm reflecting on my bias, seeking a wider range of research, reading government ministers views on policy reform or listening to Ofsted's HMCI stating that 'schools focused on delivering food parcels (rather than teaching)'.
I even listen to CEOs reporting that their newfound freedoms are the reason for their success. Like you, I'm concerned.
