Last quote by Amanda Spielman

And for most children, the end of key stage 3 is the last time they will take art, music, drama or design and technology. Where key stage 3 is curtailed, this means ending study at age 13 rather than 14.feedback

Amanda Spielman has most recently been quoted in an article called Schools are teaching GCSEs over three years in bid to boost results, Ofsted finds. Amanda Spielman said, “In a few of the schools visited, lower-attaining pupils did not have any opportunity to study a language or some arts subjects, as the school directed them on to a pathway that excluded the subject as an option, in some cases from the age of 12. It is a risk to social mobility if pupils miss out on opportunities to study subjects and gain knowledge that could be valuable in subsequent stages of education or in later life.”. Amanda Spielman has been quoted a grand total of 20 times in 10 articles.

That is not something any of us should be happy with.feedback

At the end of the day it's about an inspector's judgment. As soon as you say particular things it becomes a tick list, then they've done it. That's exactly why I'm not producing a list of examples. It's Government policy, but there isn't a prescribed translation of it, so schools will have to work it out. Those children are very highly segregated from the British mainstream, so of course it must be a concern about what is happening in those segregated worlds.feedback

Of course, the curriculum doesn't just mean a set of national curriculum or GCSE subjects, important as these are. It also means what is snappily titled: spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.feedback

What we measure through inspection can counteract some of the inevitable pressures created by performance tables and floor standards.feedback

Unacceptable though they are, these behaviours are easily explained. Most of us, if told out job depends on clearing a particular bar, will try to give ourselves the best chance of securing that outcome? Inspections are about looking underneath the bonnet to be sure that a good quality education - one that genuinely meets pupils' needs - is not being compromised.feedback

Professor Weinberg's extensive experience touches on the full range of Ofsted's responsibilities and I know he will be a tremendous asset to the organisation.feedback

We know that there are some schools that are narrowing the curriculum, using qualifications inappropriately, and moving out pupils who would drag down results. That is nothing short of a scandal. Childhood isn't deferrable; young people get one opportunity to learn in school; and we owe it to them to make sure they all get an education that is broad, rich and deep. There is more to a good education than league tables. Vitally important though a school's examination results are, we must not allow curricula to be driven just by SATs, GCSEs and A-Levels.feedback

So I am determined to make sure that the curriculum receives the proper focus it deserves.feedback
