Detail of outcome
Summary of responses we received, along with the government’s response outlining plans to proceed with lifting the exemption from routine inspection by Ofsted that currently applies to outstanding schools and colleges, subject to parliamentary approval.
Some schools, colleges and other organisations delivering publicly-funded education and training, which were rated outstanding by Ofsted at their last inspection, are legally exempt from further routine Ofsted inspection.
This consultation seeks views on the removal of the exemption.
