OFFA urges uni primary school targeting

Universities should target primary school pupils in order to widen access to higher education, the Office for Fair Access (OFFA) has said. 

OFFA's director of Fair Access to Higher Education, Les Ebdon, said universities wanting to charge higher fees should commit to "raising aspirations" of disadvantages pupils early on.

Chief inspector Sir Michael Wilshaw is expected to announce plans to bring forward school inspections in six regions where standards are low.

Ofsted are ""targeting the lowest performing local authorities", Sir Michael said on the Today Programme.

"If you look at the good local authorities, they intervene across the board, and make sure that all children, whether they go to a local authority-controlled school or an academy, do well", he added.
