Publication of Ofsted’s Annual Education and Skills Report
Commenting on the publication of Ofsted’s annual education and skills report Alan Wood, President of the Association of Directors of Children’s Services, said:
“Some of the concerns raised in this report around oversight of secondary schools in particular are shared by the membership of ADCS. Local authorities have a responsibility to promote educational excellence in their area and this duty applies to all children in all schools, including academy schools and free schools. Unless the move towards greater autonomy in our education system is partnered by a collaborative approach and a local framework of accountability the scrutiny of all schools in a locality is made all the more difficult.”
