Ofsted inspection: removal of the outstanding exemption

Closes 24 Feb 2020

Opened 10 Jan 2020

Overview

We're seeking views on the removal of the exemption for outstanding schools, colleges and other organisations delivering publicly-funded education and training.

Why We Are Consulting

Some schools, colleges and other organisations delivering publicly-funded education and training, that 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.
