How Ofsted will select new schools for inspection
Information on how Ofsted will select new schools, including academies and free schools, for inspection starting from the 2015 to 2016 academic year.
The first inspection of all new schools, including academies, will usually take place within 3 years of opening. In most instances, we will not select new schools for a first inspection until they are in their third year of operation.
