Gordon Brown has ordered Cabinet ministers to take lessons from education on improving public services as evidence is published today showing that schools are improving. The annual report of Ofsted will say that nine in ten schools have improved since its inspections started in 1992, and that classroom standards have never been higher.
A senior Whitehall figure said last night that Mr Brown considers Edwards Balls, the Education Secretary, and her immediate predecessor, to be "model public service ministers."
In spite of the successes that the Ofsted report will highlight, it will express concern that the gap between the best and the worst performing schools is growing wider, while some groups of children, especially those from ethnic minorities continue to fall behind. Maurice Smith, the outgoing head of Ofsted, will say that progress has been made on literacy and numeracy in primary schools, but that this has caused a "narrowing" of the curriculum.
More attention needs to be paid to arts, creative and practical subjects, he will say. His report also praises head teachers for their leadership and management of schools while adding that further measures need to be taken to encourage the vital support that parents can bring.
