In the ‘Aligned inspections’ section, added clarification on the revised arrangements for aligned inspections.
Removed guidance on assurance visits, as we are no longer carrying these out.
Updated to reflect the changes to Ofsted’s post-inspection processes and complaints handling (including the timeline) that we introduced in September 2020. Minor edits for readability.
