Andrea Williams discusses Ofsted's downgrading of Christian schools on BBC Radio 2

Andrea Williams discusses news that several independent Christian schools have been downgraded by Ofsted after being inspected on the same day last October, with only one day's notice.

She says that these schools "love every individual pupil.. the vibrancy, the happiness of these pupils, their intelligence, the way that they respond and respect one another and are ready for the world, is actually something that comes out in the Ofsted reports."

She also said that many parents are satisfied with the education that these schools provide, yet a small number of people are "wagering an effective campaign" "to take out this particular curriculum". The schools are currently seeking legal advice from the Christian Legal Centre.
