Writing in The Daily Telegraph (p22), Mr Woodhead says: 'We have done what most people thought was impossible and inspected every school in the country within the allotted four years.'
He believes that the majority of witnesses called to give evidence to the commons select committee for education and employment in its inquiry into the work of Ofsted will have the view that Ofsted should be abolished.
Mr Woodhead acknowledges that some improvements are needed. He says: 'Looking to the future, we need to make the language of our reports more accessible to the lay reader. We need to strengthen the subject training we provide for inspectors. We will invest more time in monitoring of inspections.'
