Naughty pupils are being paid to truant as schools attempt to trick Ofsted inspectors into letting them pass, it has been claimed.
The range of underhand tactics allegedly being employed also includes
weak teachers being told to stay off sick and schools bringing in
experienced teachers from other establishments.
The claims were made on the Times Educational Supplement online forum after Ofsted
confirmed there were 38 complaints about "a school's conduct or
activities" during inspections carried out between April and November
One post from a teacher on the forum describes how his last school
"sent 2 coachloads of disruptive pupils to Alton Towers during the 2
days of Ofsted".
Another poster wrote about how they heard the most badly behaved
children at their school had each been paid up to £100 not to attend
while Ofsted was there.
Ofsted national director Sue Gregory said that schools only have two
days' notice before their inspections so have little time to make
My comment: How naive all our watchdogs are. Albeit not Ofsted a Local Government Ombudsman's investigator once told me that they have no reason to doubt whatever a council tells them. The above shows just how easy it is to pull the wool over a watchdogs eyes.
See number (13) of the Local Government Ombudsman's 15 pillars of injustice. The above tends to prove Ofsted also operate a similarly corrupt system.
