Number of failing schools is rising

Ofsted inspectors have revealed that the number of schools found to be failing has risen. During the spring term 5% more primary schools were put in special measures. However, the number of schools given 'notices to improve' because they are at rish of failing fell by 4% to 352.

David Willets, Tory education spokesman, said, "This is yet more evidence of the pressing need to focus on raising standards in our state schools."
