Changes in school inspection arrangements

publication date: Mar 2, 2008
author/source: Ed Tranham

Around 45% of schools in England might be subject to annual inspections without prior warning, under measures announced last month by Christine Gilbert, head of Ofsted. The new system would come into force from September 2009 when the new inspection contracts will commence. The five current providers of schools inspections who were appointed in 2005 for four years are: Nord Anglia Education plc and CfBT in the north of England; Cambridge Education Limited in the Midlands; Prospects Learning Services Limited in the south of England and Tribal Education Limited in the Midlands and the south of England. Each contract is believed to be worth between £20m and £25m over the four years.
