News - 1 August 2014

New Ofsted chairman named

 David Hoare, who was brought in to help large academy chain The Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) with difficulties, has been announced as the new chairman of Ofsted. The Department for Education (DfE) said Mr Hoare, who joined AET in January, will step down to take up his new post in September.

 
Tonmoy Kumar, Manager of the Accounts Department of ABDS and an active school governor comments:
“AET runs 70 academy schools but was warned in March last year that it could not take over any more schools after some AET academies were criticised by Ofsted for failing standards.”
 
Education Secretary Nicky Morgan said: "I am delighted to appoint David to this important role. He is a proven business leader who has the expertise in leadership and governance crucial to helping Ofsted through a significant period of change and reform."
 
However, the National Union of Teachers said the appointment suggested "a politicisation of school inspection".
 
The position became vacant in February when the then chairman Baroness Morgan's contract was not renewed. Baroness Morgan was previously a senior aide to Tony Blair when he was prime minister.
