Ofsted proposing to withhold inspection reports until complaints are resolved

Inspection & Quality
Skills for Life Network

Ofsted are consulting on proposals for revisions to post-inspection arrangements, including how complaints are handled about their work. The proposals, if agreed, will enable any queries or concerns about an inspection to be addressed quickly and before an inspection report is finalised.

Ofsted is proposing to:

  • provide greater consistency in post-inspection arrangements across their work
  • allow all inspected providers 5 working days to review their draft report and submit any comments about issues of factual accuracy and the inspection process for Ofsted to consider before they finalise the report
  • consider and respond to formal complaints from inspected providers before they publish their inspection report, if these complaints are submitted promptly
  • retain current arrangements for internal reviews into complaints handling, including the scrutiny panel
