Why do I see different types of report listed?

The way in which schools are inspected has been influenced over time by changes in government requirements and educational practice, and by feedback from schools. The content of inspection reports has reflected these changes, although all reports have covered the same key information about compliance with regulations.

Each report provides information based on the framework of inspection in place at the time the school was inspected.

See Different Types of Inspection for more information.
