Detail of outcome
The government’s response to the consultation held in the autumn of 2017 on government proposals to change fees charged to independent schools for Ofsted inspections, and a technical amendment to the independent school standards outlining the next steps.
Detail of feedback received
A summary of responses received is included within the government response to the consultation.
We’re seeking views on:
the replacement of regulations governing the fees charged to independent schools by Ofsted for inspections, by regulations which set out revised fee levels, and new categories of inspection for which fees would be payable
the amendment of regulations which prescribe independent school standards - these amendments are minor, and designed to bring up to date references in the regulations to the national minimum standards (NMS) for boarding applicable to independent schools, so that regulatory action may be based on the current NMS
