This year’s annual report, the first presided over by Amanda Spielman, finds the overall quality of education and care in England is improving, but areas of persistent underperformance remain. She focuses upon consistent underperformance in some schools, the new Ofsted inspection plans from January 2018 and issues related to the strength of the school-led system in parts of the country.
