We inspect local authorities to find out how well they carry out their statutory duties in relation to promoting high standards in schools and other providers.
Reports for the local authorities where we have carried out these inspections can be downloaded through the links below.
Ofsted is currently focusing some inspection activity for particular local authority areas into a concentrated period for a proportion of schools.
This approach, coupled with the outcomes of a telephone survey of a sample of school leaders about their perception of the support and challenge provided by the local authority, enables us to obtain a clearer picture of the education provided for children and young people in those areas.
The letters to the local authorities where we have carried out these focused inspections can be downloaded through the links below.
These are letters to the local authority and on GOV.UK.
