We were inspected recently (Feb 2018) with a short inspection (Section 8) and were rated good again. (Last Section 5 was 2013) However, in our new report it said that they recommend that our next inspection be a Section 5. The LA have said that that means they will definitely visit before the end of this term because they cannot allow a Good School to go for 5 years without a Section 5 (since that was recommended in the last report). Does the Section 8 not count as an inspection during that 5 year period? We are waiting for the call, hot and bothered, having had a few months to improve the things they asked us to. I would welcome your thoughts/experience/knowledge.
