My own personal view on UK Education and bits n bobs

A question for the ASCL conference guests

1 Comment

as it wasn’t asked of Hunt, Halford or Laws I thought I would post it here…

Question for ASCL

I would really appreciate this question for all the panellists, but might be more salient for Sir Michael or Nicky Morgan


In light of the recent data that:


1.       The new progress 8 measure that schools adding valuing around the G-F and F-E will receive significantly less recognition, whereas those adding value in the C-B, B-A and A-A* will receive significantly more.

2.       Those schools with a below average intake are far more likely to be judged RI or inadequate by OFSTED (see http://www.kristianstill.co.uk/wordpress/2015/03/04/what-of-outstanding-schools-have-below-average-ability-intake/)


Can the panellist explain how they are going to attract the HTs, School Leaders and great teachers to schools in difficult circumstances?

    In light of coasting schools and more guntothehead policy…this question is still relevant
