It's great to read in Christine Gilbert's HMCI Annual Report that about one in six schools are now rated as outstanding and another half are good, leaving about a third as satisfactory and only one in twenty unsatisfactory...

However reading the recent coverage you would think that everything was failing; too much dull teaching, concerns over CRB checks, too big a gap between rich and poor and we are failing our children!

From where I stand things are getting better all the time and, although I recognise that we can do even better than this, isn't it time for a little praise for our wonderful schools, where some talented, brilliant, gorgeous and wonderful colleagues are releasing the magic day-in day-out and making suich an incredible difference here in Leeds.
