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.
