Ofsted – satisfactory or not ?

Sorry but I just can’t bring myself to write much about this. I am recording it here for posterity really. Just wanted to record the moment in England’s education history when satisfactory wasn’t … wasn’t satisfactory I mean.

This from the BBC Education News.

I had to go to the dictionary to be sure … and … satisfactory (adj): Fulfilling expectations or needs; acceptable, though not outstanding or perfect..

So I get it now all schools have to be outstanding and perfect … and, of course, above average.

…and now …

“requires improvement” … requires (vb): Need for a particular purpose; depend on for success or survival Improvement (n) The action of improving or being improved

Says it all really !
