These results prove nothing and are a waste of time and tax.

Why? Just because a teacher and group of children got a result doesn't not mean they will the following year - the teacher may move on. The new students may come from homes which don't value education and so on.

It's worth noting that all the academic studies show the strongest predictor of how well a child does at school is
1) genetics - what IQ was the child born with ? IQ of 125 gets postgraduate degrees IQs of 60 cant walk and talk at the same time.
2) Home background. If the parents have degrees so will the children. The right books are used at home, the right conversation, the visits to Museums and art galleries and so on.

Governments don't like this academically verified truths being mentioned because it is a question then that the voters are at fault if their children don't succeed.

Sc scrap OFSTED and these test as both are a waste of time. And dont be silly parents and wonder about how good the local school is. It's how good your homelife is which matters...
