Ofsted's Chief Inspector has warned that schools are "responding to funding pressure by reducing curriculum breadth".
In a blog post, Amanda Speilman said Ofsted "placed curriculum and quality of education at the heart of our education inspection framework, because all pupils should be entitled to a broad and rich curriculum".
“This makes it particularly concerning that schools are responding to funding pressure by reducing curriculum breadth, with languages, computing, design and technology and music most affected. Extra-curricular provision has also been cut in a number of schools. This may reduce pupils’ opportunities to enrich their experiences and grow cultural capital.”
The post was removed soon after, apparently because it had been published "erroneously", Schools Week reports.
