Schools should admit children at two, says Ofsted chief

November 5, 2013 9:52 am

Baroness Sally Morgan, the chairman of Ofsted, has called for a radical drive to raise standards of early education, including enrolling more children in school-based nurseries. Baroness Morgan said that many deprived children had “low social skills”, poor standards of reading and an inability to communicate properly, meaning they were “not ready to learn” when they entered the first full year of school. She called for the creation of a new generation of “all-through” schools that combine nurseries with primary and secondary education – enabling children to be enrolled at the age of two or three and remain up to 18.
