TES is reporting that Ofsted is set to consult on changing the way it deals with school complaints about inspection reports, it has been revealed.
The plans were revealed in a report into Ofsted by the Policy Exchange think tank.
The report said that there has been longstanding criticism of Ofsted’s complaints process and that these concerns have become more critical under the new inspection framework because it provides “greater space for individual inspector judgement”.
An Ofsted spokesperson said: “There will be a consultation on changes to Ofsted’s complaints procedure, and that will be launched soon.”
