Today sees the publication of Ofsted's annual report (click here for links to the report and various supporting documents and summaries), which contains information about Ofsted's findings from the past year, grouped around the themes of looked-after children, teaching and learning, and skills for employment. In particular, a need to tackle inadequate teaching has been highlighted.

However, this year's report has rather been overshadowed by the publication of this paper by the Association of Directors of Children's Services, which argues that the inspection models which Ofsted currently uses are flawed and need to change. Further press reaction to this controversy is available in this BBC article and this piece from the Guardian.
