Parents and governors at the Discovery New School in Crawley have expressed their dismay after it became the first free school to be closed.
Deborah Lawson, the General Secretary of Voice: the union for education professionals, reacts to Sir Michael Wilshaw's Ofsted report.
The percentage of pupils at good or outstanding secondary schools is highest in Bath and North East Somerset.
The Prime Minster's spokesmen made clear that the PM wants a ban on gender-segregated audiences on campus even where men and women voluntarily separate themselves, but stressed that his comments did not relate to places of worship.
– The PM's spokesman told a daily Westminster media briefing
[The Prime Minister] does not believe that guest speakers should be allowed to address segregated audiences, so he believes that Universities UK should urgently review its guidance.
Guest speakers should not be allowed to address gender segregated audiences in universities, David Cameron has said.
The Prime Minister is urging Universities UK urgently to review guidance which endorsed the voluntary separation of men and women in audiences for debates and lectures involving Muslim speakers on campus.
Mr Cameron's comments come after Education Secretary Michael Gove denounced the guidance as "pandering to extremism" and called for it to be withdrawn.
The Prime Minister believes that universities should not beallowed to segregate audiences by gender at the request of guest speakers, Downing Street has said.
The best action for primary schools that are "not stepping up to the mark" is for them to be taken over by academy sponsors, according to the Department for Education.
– Department for Education spokesman
Schools with a long history of under-performance, and who are not stepping up to the mark, will be taken over by an academy sponsor.
The expertise and strong leadership provided by sponsors is the best way to turn around weak schools and give pupils there the best chance of a first-class education.
Despite DfE findings that 767 schools are failing to meet the Government's new tougher targets, the data suggested that overall primary schools are improving.
Last year 834 primaries would have fallen below the new standards.
More than 700 primary schools in England fall below the Government's new tougher standards in reading, writing and arithmetic, Department for Education figures suggest.
For the first time, schools are judged on the number of children achieving at least a Level 4 - the standard expected of the age group - in reading, writing and maths.
They must ensure that at least 60% of pupils reach this level in all three subjects and meet national averages in pupil progress.
In previous years, they were rated on reading and writing combined to form an overall English result and maths, as well as progress.
The 767 schools that fail to meet the target are considered under-performing and face being taken over and turned into academies.
Schools in England are suffering from a culture of "casual acceptance" of classroom misbehaviour, Ofsted's chief inspector has warned.
In his second annual report, Sir Michael Wilshaw warned there is also a trend of white working class children being left behind and a "postcode lottery" in schools.
ITV News political correspondent Romilly Weeks reports from Norfolk:
Sir Michael highlights that children who attend schools in London, Greater Manchester and Devon are "lucky" as they have a better chance of a decent education.
"Unlucky" areas stated in the report include the Isle of Wight, Northumberland and Norfolk.
Shadow education secretary Tristram Hunt said Ofsted's annual report shows David Cameron is "threatening school standards" with "a damaging postcode lottery education system".
Mr Hunt said:
By allowing unqualified teachers into our classrooms and having no strategy for school collaboration ... David Cameron is damaging school standards and hurting children's life chances.
Labour would ensure high standards in all schools, with rigorous local oversight, effective collaboration and properly qualified teachers.
