Outstanding schools face relegation

Scratching around the Ofsted website, it appears that four of Cornwall's secondary schools achieved "outstanding" status last year. They are Helston Community College, Newquay Tretherras, Penrice Community College and The Roseland Community College. But the new Ofsted criteria will require the quality of teaching to also be "outstanding" - and only Penrice meets this test. The teaching at Helston, Newquay and The Roseland was classed as only "good." No wonder the teachers were not very impressed with the new Ofsted yardstick.
