Consultation description

This consultation seeks views on proposals for a clearer, simpler approach to identifying schools that may benefit from an offer of support to help improve a school’s educational performance.

Our proposal is that all schools judged as ‘Requires improvement’ by Ofsted will be eligible for support, and that schools with 2 consecutive ‘Requires improvement’ judgements will be eligible for more intensive support.

To simplify accountability we are also proposing to remove floor and coasting data standards.
