Two key changes to Ofsted’s updated complaints procedure for schools come into force today, following a consultation last year.

The watchdog has also added detail to its policy on pausing inspections in exceptional circumstances and widened it to apply across all childcare, education and social care inspections and regulatory visits, whereas before it just applied to schools.

New arrangements for considering formal challenges to Ofsted inspections apply from today.

Schools can now seek a review of their inspection, including inspector conduct and the judgements made, by submitting a formal complaint when they receive their draft report.
