Ofsted: Curriculum ‘suffered’ because of academisation

The curriculum in England’s schools “started to suffer” because of academisation, a top Ofsted official has said.

Sean Harford, Ofsted’s national director of education, said today that the inspectorate “missed a trick” because it was slow to respond to schools having “the freedoms to do different stuff” after they became academies.

He said this was part of a “double whammy” to the curriculum, with cuts to Ofsted’s budget also forcing the inspectorate to rely more on performance data.
