What is Ofsted? New changes afoot following the death of Ruth Perry

30 Jan 2024
Following the suicide of headteacher Ruth Perry after a critical Ofsted inspection, MPs and the Education Select Committee are advocating for reforms to the grading system used by Ofsted, the UK's education oversight body. The proposed changes aim to eliminate single-word judgments like 'inadequate' and adopt a more empathetic approach. Ofsted's new chief, Sir Martyn Oliver, acknowledges the need for high standards but also the importance of empathy, and is set to implement reforms including mental health training for inspectors. The changes are in response to widespread criticism of Ofsted's inspection methods, particularly after the inquest into Perry's death highlighted the inspection's lack of fairness and sensitivity.

What is Ofsted? Changes on the horizon following death of Ruth Perry

30 Jan 2024
Following the suicide of headteacher Ruth Perry after a stressful Ofsted inspection, the Education Select Committee has recommended that Ofsted stop using single-word judgements like 'inadequate' to rate schools. The committee seeks a more empathetic approach amid strained relationships between schools and Ofsted. The new chief inspector, Sir Martyn Oliver, has acknowledged the need for high standards but also for empathy, and plans to implement reforms including mental health training for inspectors. Ofsted, a non-ministerial department of the UK Government, inspects and regulates education and children's services, reporting directly to Parliament and stakeholders. The changes in inspection practices come after advocacy groups and unions called for a review of the stressful inspection process.

Nostradamus' predictions appear to be coming true in 2024

04 Jan 2024
A 7.5-magnitude earthquake hit Ishikawa and its Noto peninsula in Japan on January 1, 2024, killing at least 55 people. This event has led some to draw parallels with Nostradamus' predictions. Nostradamus, a 16th-century French astrologer, is known for his book 'Les Prophéties,' which contains quatrains that some believe predict future events. His prophecies have been linked to historical events like the rise of Hitler and the death of Queen Elizabeth II. For 2024, Nostradamus' predictions include a war with China, the dethroning of King Charles, a large environmental disaster, the potential death of Pope Francis, and the onset of a third world war, with current global conflicts seen as potential confirmations.
