Why Schools Fail - Research Report

School Leaders’ Views on the Impact of Inspection

This Ofsted investigation report, researched and written by Adrian Gray, summarises the findings from responses to Ofsted’s post-inspection survey, completed immediately after a school inspection, and an impact survey, completed 4 months after inspection.

The post-inspection survey asks school leaders, staff and governors for their views on a range of issues, including the quality and conduct of the inspection, its likely impact on their school and what changes they intend to make. The impact survey asked school leaders about the changes they were making, or had already made, as a result of their school’s most recent inspection.
