School Ofsted Reports. Headteachers angry at more failures in Schools.

According to analysis by the Times Educational Supplement School Ofsted failures or those marked as 'inadequate' in 2010 have shot up from just 4 per cent to 7.5 per cent.

More Primary schools were declared inadequate than secondary schools increasing from 3 to 7.3 per cent.

The percentage of schools rated as "outstanding" has slumped from 19 per cent to 9.2 per cent. Particularly secondary schools which had fallen from 22 per cent to 9.5 per cent.

In total 150 schools have failed compared with around 80 in previous years. The number rated outstanding has fallen from 380 to 184.

Headteachers are obviously worried about the loss of their jobs if schools are declared inadequate especially those who run schools in deprived areas.

Under new procedures, schools are marked down if they have low exam results – even if they are in deprived areas.

This means that some schools and colleges have a greater challenge compared to those in more affluent areas.

Esteem Building/Exam Boosting Seminars

If you are a parent, teacher or school governer we have something that may be of interest you.

We would like to help you get your exam results up by running a series of Esteem Building/Exam Boosting seminars in your school for your year 9, 10 and 11 students.

But we need two things. We need a room in your school to run the seminars and a letter of invite passed to the parents of your students.

The letter will inform parents that the school is inviting an Education Coach to run a series of Esteem Building/Exam Boosting seminars. It will invite them free of charge to one of the seminars if they can make a small payment for their child to participate.

We will give your school free places at each seminar for you to invite parents and kids.
