Proposals

We welcome your views on our proposals:
  • to convert short inspections to a full section 5 inspection, normally within 48 hours, if there are serious concerns about safeguarding, behaviour or the quality of education
  • to send a letter to a school that sets out strengths and priorities for improvement and a section 5 carried out at a later date, if inspectors are not confident that the school would receive its current grade if a full section 5 were carried out
  • to send a letter to a school that sets out strengths and priorities for further improvement and a section 5 carried out at a later date, if inspectors identify strong practice that could indicate the school is improving towards being outstanding.
