Ofsted Short Inspections

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.

Handling Parental Complaints and Conducting an Investigation Webinar

This Better Governor webinar will take place on February 13th at 08.00. It will explore how governors, trustees and those serving on Local Academy Committees ensure that parental complaints are handled effectively within their schools. Governing Boards are required to ensure that the school or academy has effective systems in place for listening to the views of parents and carers, and responding to their concerns. Governors may also be involved in commissioning or conducting investigations. This webinar will explore best practice issues surrounding parental complaints handling.
