Ofsted publishes 2005/06 annual report
posted on 22 November 2006, updated on 22 November 2006
This year's annual report is the first review since Ofsted adopted a shorter, sharper approach to school inspection in September 2005.
This year nine per cent of primary schools were found to be outstanding and 49 per cent were good. Ten percent of secondary schools were found to outstanding and 39 per cent were judged to be good.
However the proportion of inadequate secondary schools, at 13 per cent, was almost twice that of primary schools, at seven per cent.
The report also looks at the quality of childcare, further education and the services local authorities provide for children through Joint Area Reviews and Annual Performance Assessments.
The outstanding providers list, which celebrates the 1,476 schools, colleges and early years providers that were judged to be outstanding in 2005/06, has also been published.
