Poor schools are highlighted.

ALMOST half of schools inspected last term were found to be not good enough, according to figures published yesterday.

Some seven per cent were classed as "inadequate", data published by Ofsted show. And almost two in five (37 per cent) were judged by inspectors to be "satisfactory".

It means that overall, 44 per cent of the 2,016 schools in England inspected during autumn term 2010 were given a grading below "good".

Overall, just under half (46 per cent) of inspected schools were judged as good, and one in ten (10 per cent) were found to be outstanding.

Ofsted said that changes to inspections mean that comparison with previous years have to be treated "with caution".

In the autumn term of 2009, out of 2,140 schools inspected, 49 per cent were considered good or outstanding, 40 per cent were satisfactory and 10 per cent were inadequate.
