    I'm posting to ask if anyone is willing to share experiences of Section 8 monitoring visits in RI schools? Either on here, or via PM.

    Sorry , no experience.
    Just wanted to wish you lots of luck.
    From a colleague's experience, I think you will have the next inspection within 30 months. So it could happen very soon or very late which really isn't very helpful. Colleague's school is still waiting 17 months after their RI judgement.

    thanks - have recently had it but was curious to see if our experience matched others! Felt like the outcome was already decided on the basis of KS data...

    Several years ago, but when I worked in a School in RI we had a monitoring visit once a term.
    The Inspector was fantastic and said probably the shortest we could expect to move out of RI was after 3 visits , but if all went well during a visit if he felt we were ready, even though technically on a Section 5, he could alter the designation to Section 5 during the morning and could then move out without having to wait for another planned inspection.

    Was working in RI school last year- outcomes did play large oartin conversation but does depend when in the year they come. We actually found the follow vusits were supportive if very intense!
