Teach First statement on Ofsted annual report

Commenting on the Ofsted annual report, published today, Brett Wigdortz, CEO and founder of Teach First said: 

"It's hugely welcome that standards are increasing overall but we must not take our eye off the ball and see disadvantaged areas fall behind. Teach First are committed to helping the areas with the greatest need – the North, Midlands and coastal areas – by recruiting many more great teachers to increase the attainment and unlock the aspirations of pupils from all backgrounds. Schools, government and communities need to work together to ensure teaching remains an attractive, viable choice for top talent across the country."
