Failing schools in England up by 18%

The number of schools in England deemed to be failing at the end of last term rose by almost a fifth compared with 2006, schools inspectorate Ofsted reported today.

The 18% rise can be partly explained by a sharp increase in the number of inspections, but ministers also said it reflected an “uncompromising approach” toward underperforming schools.

By the end of the summer term this year, 246 schools were in special measures – the most serious category of concern for Ofsted, up from 208 at the same time last year.
