Ofsted Short Inspections

Consultant: Steve BarkerDate posted: October 2017

Ofsted conducted a consultation between 15th June and 18th August, seeking views on proposals to change the timescale for short (Section 8) inspections. One of the key proposals was to extend the time, when a short inspection is converted to a full inspection, from the current 48 hours, to a maximum of 15 days.

The outcomes of this consultation, together with Ofsted’s plans for how inspections will be conducted, after October half term, have now been published. To read about these changes, log in to Better Governor or register now for free.

This article explores the revisions and highlights these important changes. The governing body is accountable for publication of statutory information, so it vital that governors from maintained schools understand the requirements in order to be compliant.
