The Chief Inspector of Ofsted said today it was ‘encouraging’ that more schools improved last term under its tough new inspection arrangements.

Sir Michael Wilshaw was speaking on the day that Ofsted published the latest official statistics on inspections and outcomes for schools, covering the quarter ending 31 December 2012.

The new figures show that almost half the schools inspected during the last quarter improved their overall effectiveness judgement (977 — or 47% of the 2,102 schools inspected) from their previous inspection.
