I beg to move amendment No. 130, in clause 94, page 54, line 29, at end insert

‘, or any other standard considered to be relevant by the independent inspectorate.’.

The purpose of the amendment is to ensure that the Independent Schools Inspectorate can look beyond what is specified by the chief inspector. That concern was raised by the ISI in its comments on the clause. It said:

“We would want to look at more than an area which may be specified, if it was appropriate.”

The concern is that this provision might restrict that.
