Ofsted Guidance for School Leaders

NorthEd White

The headlines:

Every school is in the frame for inspections, including schools previously judged to be Outstanding. If the Outstanding judgement came before 2015 schools should get a section 5 inspection next; if the Outstanding judgement came after 2015 then it is more likely to be a section 8 inspection.

Schools that have been RI twice or more and have been inspected twice last academic year will not get another visit before a section 5 inspection.

Roughly speaking, schools should add 18 months to when they were expecting an inspection.
