Quality of Education in UK

Recommended Posts

While history had seen a 21% improvement (proportion of lessons judged very good or excellent for 11-14 year olds by Ofsted) the increase in the case of design and technology was 8%. At the moment 81% of PE lessons were rated very good or excellent, compared with only 59% of those in modern foreign languages.

Overall, the system is quite unreliable if you are a pupil or a parent. It's not quite hit and miss, but it's almost hit and miss whether your classroom teacher is working rigorously and systematically to improve the classroom experience for every child.

We are making progress and everyone in the profession should give themselves a small pat on the back. But this is happening in rather a varied way - and we need a more systematic approach.
