The proportion of schools that recovered from a ‘requires improvement’ grade this year was the lowest on record, Ofsted has revealed.
In its annual report, Ofsted said a lower proportion of schools previously judged to ‘require improvement’ improved at their inspection this year than in any other year.
In 2016-17, 33 per cent of primary schools and 58 per cent of secondary schools failed to improve from a ‘requires improvement’ or ‘satisfactory’ rating.
A higher proportion of schools also declined from ‘requires improvement’ to ‘inadequate’ this year.
