How long until the next inspection?

Most outstanding schools are exempt from routine inspection. We formally carry out a risk assessment of exempt schools three years after their most recent full inspection and regularly thereafter, but do not publish a report.

Outstanding special schools, pupil referral units and maintained nursery schools are not exempt from routine inspection.

We can inspect schools at any time if we have concerns.

We normally give notice on the afternoon of the working day before an inspection. We can also inspect schools without notice.
