The Government plan to streamline and refocus Ofsted inspection, and introduce greater proportionality into the inspection arrangements. School inspection will in future be centred on core areas around teaching and learning, and outstanding schools will be freed from routine inspection, subject to them maintaining their performance and the confidence of parents. Similar freedoms are proposed for colleges. Further detail on this programme of reform will be announced in due course.
