Find out how you can support your school leaders to develop an action plan after an inspection, and what happens if your school’s been judged inadequate.

Be clear on how governance will be inspected under the 2019 Ofsted framework in our article.

Our associate education experts, Phil Preston and Kate Foale, helped us to write this article.

Feedback after the inspection

You'll be invited to a feedback meeting with your school leaders once the inspection is over.

During the meeting, the lead inspector will highlight any recommendations for improvement (page 31 of the inspection handbook).

Make sure you and your school leaders use the recommendations to help form your school's action plan. This will help you and your school leaders demonstrate how you intend to implement the recommendations.

School leaders will draft the action plan

Leave the operational aspects of the plan to your senior leadership team. The action plan can be a standalone document or it can be integrated into the school improvement plan (SIP). Either way, an effective action plan should link to your SIP.
