Union argues that Ofsted and government need to address recruitment challenges in schools
Schools included on a so-called “name and shame” list by the education watchdog have lost almost 600 staff since 2015, a union has said.
Research by the National Education Union (NEU) found 216 classroom teachers and 133 teaching assistants were among the 599 positions no longer filled over a two-year period at 124 schools highlighted by Ofsted, according to the Government’s own workforce figures.
According to Ofsted’s annual report released this week, 124 schools have failed to record a good or outstanding Ofsted inspection since 2005, despite receiving
“considerable attention and investment”.
