Commenting on the report from the LGA, Inspection statics – LA-maintained schools and academies, Leora Cruddas, Chief Executive of the Confederation of School Trusts (CST) said:
“This report is flawed. Particularly in the final section which provides an analysis of the time taken to improve a school from inadequate to good, the data is presented in different ways which does not allow for direct comparisons. The analysis is therefore weak and the conclusions are flawed.”
