Here you will find the key documents that Ofsted use during inspections.

 Ensure you familiarise yourself with the inspection documents so that you understand the process. Look at the grade descriptors in the 'Inspection handbook' as these are the ones that inspectors use to judge your school. Ofsted has recently refined and reduced the number of documents it uses.

Contact us for documents that we have created to help schools prepare for Ofsted.
