For state-funded schools, the Department’s intention is that routine, graded Ofsted inspections will not be reintroduced until the 2021 summer term. During the spring term, inspectors will conduct monitoring inspections in schools most in need of support, such as inadequate schools and schools that require improvement. These supportive visits will focus on matters that are particularly relevant at this time, such as curriculum and teaching (including remote education), and attendance, particularly of vulnerable pupils.
