The Secretary of State paid a visit to St Agnes’ Catholic Primary School, in Thorverton Road, Cricklewood, on 9 January along with Ofsted’s Chief Inspector Amanda Spielman to speak with staff about Ofsted’s new inspection framework which began last September, and about proposals to inspect ‘outstanding’ schools more frequently.

St Agnes’ received an ‘outstanding’ rating in October after undergoing an inspection under the new tougher framework.

As well as speaking with staff, Mr Williamson and Ms Spielman spent time in three of the school’s classes to speak with pupils.

More information on Ofsted inspections can be found online.
