Ofsted chief inspector Amanda Spielman has told parliament that issues with Ofsted’s grading system may not be addressed for two years.
According to Spielman, Ofsted is potentially not reviewing its grading system until the inspectorate’s new framework is implemented.
According to Schools Week, Spielman said last year that she wanted to have talks in regards to abolishing the top ‘outstanding’ grade.
She also stated earlier this year that she was “quite uncomfortable” with “some of the effects” she saw the outstanding grade having on the school system.
Despite this, she has told the same committee that she did not have an “easy answer” on this matter because of a conflict between views of schools and parents.
