Ofsted: Government must clearly articulate inspector's role

24 May 2018

Public Accounts Committee Chair Meg Hillier MP has commented on today’s National Audit Office report on Ofsted’s inspection of schools.

The Committee Chair, Meg Hillier MP, comments:

"Ofsted plays a crucial role in ensuring pupils receive high quality education.

Over the past decade, successive governments have asked Ofsted to do more with less. The Department for Education needs to clearly articulate Ofsted’s role and explain how it fits with the various other bodies which monitor schools."
