Advice note from Sir Michael Wilshaw, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector, on the inspection of schools previously inspected by the Bridge Schools Inspectorate.
At the start of the 2014 to 2015 academic year, Ofsted became responsible for inspecting schools previously inspected by the Bridge Schools Inspectorate (BSI).
Following a review of the timing of previous inspections, HMCI commissioned Her Majesty’s Inspectors to carry out inspections of all 17 schools that the BSI had not inspected since September 2012. In addition, the Department for Education (DfE) commissioned Ofsted to inspect a further 5 schools formerly inspected by the BSI.
The advice note summarises the main findings of these inspections, together with HMCI’s conclusions and recommendation.
