Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector, Sir Michael Wilshaw, will write to the hon. Member regarding the number of primary schools that have gone from an inadequate to a good Ofsted rating in four years since 2005. A copy of his reply will be placed in the libraries of the House. Information regarding this can also be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/monthly-management-information-ofsteds-school-inspections-outcomes
The National College for Teaching & Leadership (NCTL) recognises the achievements of head teachers, teachers and governors who raise standards in their own and other schools, by designating them as system leaders. Over a thousand head teachers have so far been designated as National Leaders of Education (NLEs) with the schools they lead designated as National Support Schools. Furthermore, over 6000 outstanding teachers, working within teaching school alliances, have been designated as Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs).
Whenever a school achieves an outstanding Ofsted grading the Secretary of State conveys her congratulations by writing to the school concerned. The department also encourages organisations and individuals to put forward teachers and governors for National Honours.
