Orders of the Day — Education Bill [Lords]
Ms Ruth Kelly (Secretary of State, Department for Education and Skills; Bolton West, Labour)
I shall come in due course to how schools will use the self-evaluation process and be monitored by Ofsted.
The new inspection regime will give a sharper picture of a school's effectiveness. It will start from the school's own evaluation of its strengths and weaknesses, look at the school's key systems for improvement and observe lessons. It will take into account the views of parents and all concerned with the school. It will produce shorter, more accessible inspection reports for parents.
