Inspection and the use of grade predictions

The culmination of two years’ hard work for those about to take GCSEs, including my own son, is soon to be upon us. Once the exams are taken, marked and graded, the results will reflect the curriculum choices, planning, teaching, learning and sheer hard work of pupils and their teachers across the land. They will be a source of pride for most and disappointment for some. But whatever emotions they stir, we know that exam grades are only a partial reflection of what happens in a school. That’s why inspection takes into account a wide range of evidence on achievement; it doesn’t just rely on published test and exam data.
