asked Her Majesty's Government:
What procedures are in place for inspection of schools run by the Focus Learning Trust; and whether children attending schools run by that trust are receiving a satisfactory education.
All independent schools in England must be registered with the Department for Education and Skills and are inspected regularly to ensure that they meet our statutory requirements. The schools run by the Focus Learning Trust were inspected by Ofsted when they first registered. The Schools Inspection Service (SIS) has been approved to inspect registered independent schools run by the Focus Learning Trust (FLT) under arrangements which are monitored by Ofsted. Inspection reports published by SIS describe the standard of education received in FLT schools.
Independent schools in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are registered and regulated under arrangements made in each separate area.
