Ofsted warns of class gap affecting educational attainment

    Slow progress in reducing the gap in achievement between schools
    with high and low levels of disadvantage, has been highlighted as
    an issue of concern by schools watchdog Ofsted, writes
    Kirsty Brown.

    In a report published today, chief inspector of schools David
    Bell identified the impact of social class on educational
    attainment as a continuing problem.

    Bell said: “I was the first from my family to attend
    university. I find it troubling that over 25 years later, many of
    our least advantaged young people still believe that higher
    qualifications are beyond their reach.”
