Chris Woodhead, chief inspector of schools, has rejected calls for the government to scrap Ofsted and transfer the resources saved to fund a national system of self-reivew, reports The Financial Times (p8).

The call came from Mick Brookes, president of the National Association of Head Teachers, the biggest union representing headteachers.

Mr Woodhead said the attack was nothing new. 'You have got the teaching unions repeatedly, year after year, wanting to try to remove Ofsted.' It was important to distinguish between legitimate concern over inspections that had gone wrong and the heads' demand to dismantle Ofsted, he said.
