    Dismiss Notice

No outcome given after Ofsted inspection and possibility of a re-inspection?

    Our school was inspected a few weeks ago and staff still haven't been told the outcome. The report hasn't been published yet either. I am gathering it isn't good because the leadership team seem very stressed and unhappy and the LEA have been in constantly ever since. Last week, the Head told us that he was unhappy with the way the inspection was carried out and that he has complained to Ofsted. This makes me think he is challenging the verdict. However, he said that as a result of his complaint, Ofsted may return for a second full inspection 'very soon'.

    Is this likely to happen? Surely if they re-inspected every school that disagreed with a bad outcome, they would waste a lot of time. Is it just the Head being paranoid or has anyone had any experience of Ofsted coming then returning again within a few months?
