Gavin Williamson – 2021 Comments on Amanda Spielman’s Extended Time in Role

The comments made by Gavin Williamson, the Secretary of State for Education, on 27 May 2021.

Amanda Spielman has a wealth of knowledge and experience from her five years leading Ofsted that will be invaluable as we work to support the education sector to make sure every child is able to recover from the impact of the pandemic.

I am grateful she will remain in place as Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector for a further two years to oversee a smooth reintroduction of a full programme of inspections, providing vital constructive challenge and reassurance to parents and families.
