White working class children 'lack aspiration and drive' of migrant communities, says Ofsted chief

Children from white working class families can the "lack the aspiration and drive" of migrant communities, the Chief Inspector of schools has said. Amanda Spielman said that schools in white working class areas tend to get worse inspection reports, adding that this “shouldn’t surprise us”.

She cited analysis from the Department for Education (DfE) which showed that schools in these areas struggle to recruit teachers and have challenges with capacity. Speaking on Thursday at the Wellington College Festival of Education in Berkshire, Ms Spielman said there is “no doubt” that schools in white working class communities have a “harder job to do than others”.
