Education Committee


MPs on the Education Committee took evidence on the annual report of the Ofsted chief inspector on 12 February 2014.

The aim of the session is to examine issues and concerns raised by the annual report of the chief inspector, Sir Michael Wilshaw, published on 11 December 2013.

Launching his second Annual Report, Sir Michael said that, overall, schools and colleges across the country were performing better than they were a year ago.

Children now have a better chance than ever of attending a good or outstanding school, while the further education and skills sector has "raised its game" since major concerns were highlighted in the 2011/12 report.

The witnesses giving evidence were:

• Sir Michael Wilshaw, HM Chief Inspector, Ofsted

• Matthew Coffey, director, learning and skills, Ofsted
