Conservatives want every teacher to be scrutinised

In a report in the TES, if the Conservatives came to power they would want every teacher to face a visit from Ofsted in 'lightning inspections' with no prior warning.

Their other education proposals include:

  • Replacement of KS1 English assessments with a national reading test for 6-year-olds
  • Ofsted will ensure that all schools teach synthetic phonics
  • All academic subjects will be taught be ability (presumably this refers to High Schools?)
  • 'Credit' and 'debit' rewards schemes used to promote discipline
  • Local authorities to divide large failing schools into small schools on the same site.
