Ofsted Guidance for School Leaders

NorthEd White

The headlines:

Ofsted are committed to inspecting all schools between May 2021 and July 2025. (If you were inspected between September 2020 and May 2021, you might get away without another one...) 

If a school was judged outstanding before 2015 you should get a graded inspection. If the outstanding judgement came after 2015 then it is more likely to be an ungraded inspection. 

Ofsted are likely to inspect good schools last inspected in the 2016/17 academic year early in the 2022/23 academic year.
