I wondered what you all thought about the possibility of OFSTED dropping the "outstanding" grade? Is it a good or bad idea?

I got outstanding on my last inspection. To be honest I means little to me as the inspector only gave me outstanding in learning and development and said I might lose it when the report went to quality control. I fact in cane back outstanding in all areas. So to be given it by somebody who didn’t even see me seemed a little pointless
