Jessica Edwards is the chair of the NEU’s Policy, Research and Campaigns Executive committee and works as a primary school teacher in Lambeth.

Jessica hopes that the Inquiry will help to inform us all about how we can improve and develop school accountability in a way that truly benefits education in our schools and colleges. She believes that the current Ofsted system is fundamentally flawed and that it is crucial an alternative is worked on. This Inquiry can play a part in that.
