Responding to news that Amanda Spielman will be the next chief inspector at Ofsted, Russell Hobby, general secretary of school leaders’ union NAHT says: “We offer our congratulations to Amanda Spielman on her nomination for this vital role and look forward to discussing the concerns and ideas of our members.
“Ofsted has begun a process of reform in recent months to take up a more constructive position in the education system, but there is much work still to be done and a rapidly changing environment to keep pace with. We need to reduce the burden of inspection on good institutions and strike the right balance between data and judgement. We look forward to working with the new HMCI on these issues and more.”
