Ofsted performance assessments

Given recent events in Haringey, it is difficult to know how much value (if any) can be placed on the publication of Ofsted's annual performance assessments. Given that Haringay were given an 'adequate' rating, it means that this year's markings leave considerable cause for concern.

It seems extraordinary that the top brass at Ofsted has not yet met the same fate as Haringey's Director of Children's Services. I suppose that means no more than that they've not had the tabloids on their backs rather than us having a Government that simply doesn't care about such things.

It's been a while since you last posted. I hope you haven't upped sticks and moved out from blogging! Anyway, I've added you to my blogroll.

Thanks for the link. I certainly haven't upped sticks, just feel that the political agenda is still being dictated by the debt crisis and that I've done that subject to death. Hence the pause, but it's no more than that.
