The inspectorate said the term was more relevant to modern teenagers and their parents than the current rating of “inadequate”.
In addition, when new ratings are awarded, schools will be able to go on to Ofsted’s website and give their reaction, ranging from “mingin’” to “true dat” to “Ofsted are gay, more like”.
Chief inspector Sir Michael Wilshaw said that the “outstanding” rating could be changed to “buff” by the end of the year, if there was sufficient support among schools.
“We hope the stigma will make schools want to improve pretty damned sharpish. No one will want to come to a ‘gay’ school, especially not the homophobic generation of bullying bastards that are today’s teenagers.”Tweet
