Ofsted inspection grades challenged | BBC News

Parents should have more reliable measures than Ofsted grades to compare schools in England, says a report from a new education think tank.

The EDSK report challenges the accuracy of grades such as outstanding, good or requires improvement.

Think tank director Tom Richmond says there is no evidence to support “summarising an entire school in a single number or phrase”.

But Ofsted rejected the claims about inspectors’ grades as “inaccurate”.
