Wilshaw wants councils to take responsibility for school improvement

Wilshaw spoke about his commitment to improving the prospects of children from poor backgrounds and to reduce the long tail of underachievement – especially in our secondary schools. Wilshaw also expressed his disapproval of the suggestion that new grammar schools could be created with Prime Minister, Theresa May, considering removing an almost 20-year restriction on creating new grammar schools.

He said ‘You will know that I have been very critical of those parts of the country where poor children continue to be let down and where pupil premium money is being squandered.

I have also been determined to ensure that Ofsted inspectors are taking a tough line with those schools where poor children – especially the most able poor – consistently underperform’.
