Ofsted Annual Report 2019.

Commenting on Ofsted’s Annual Report and Accounts 2018-19, published today (18 Jul), Andrew Morris, Assistant General Secretary of the National Education Union, said:

“According to Ofsted’s 2019 annual report, Ofsted has by its own admission met only 6 of 13 aims in its performance indicators.

“The report also acknowledges that five out of six teachers think that Ofsted brings ‘unacceptable levels of burden into the system’, with the proportion of teachers agreeing with that statement (84%) having increased compared to last year (82%).

“Ofsted also failed to meet its target (73%) for the number of parents agreeing with the statement ‘Ofsted is a valuable source of information about education and childcare’ with only 67% agreeing.

“The National Education Union remains deeply sceptical about Ofsted’s bold and ambitious claims for its new inspection framework. The uncomfortable truth for Ofsted is that the practices it deplores - narrowing of the school curriculum and teaching to the test - are the results of its own enforcement through inspection of a range of narrow measures to judge school quality.

“Ofsted’s own research shows that those carrying out its pilot inspections questioned whether they could make curriculum judgements in the time available for inspection.  How such complex, detailed, value-laden judgements can be made consistently across England’s 20,000 schools is a fundamental question – and one that Ofsted cannot answer.

“The NEU believes that the time for tinkering around with Ofsted is over.  England needs a new system of school accountability instead – one that keeps good teachers and school leaders in the profession, working to improve the life chances of our children and young people.”

Ofsted's corporate annual reports provide highlights of projects and set out our progress in meeting our objectives. They also include accounts for each year.
