Ofsted has appointed Dame Christine Gilbert, a former chief inspector of Ofsted, to to lead an independent review into the organisation’s response to the death of headteacher Ruth Perry.

The independent review will start this month and Dame Christine will report on her findings later this year with any recommendations for changes to Ofsted’s internal policies and processes for responding to tragic incidents.

Ofsted will respond to these recommendations as part of the wider response to the Big Listen this autumn.

Dame Christine is currently chair of charity the Education Endowment Foundation and was chief inspector of Ofsted between 2006 and 2011.
