Over 1,000 outstanding schools not inspected in 10 years

The BBC recently discovered that 24 schools have gone without inspection for more than 13 years. 

According to the data there are 1,010 outstanding schools that have not had a visit from Ofsted in 10 years. 

There has been an exemption rule on routine inspections for outstanding school which has been in place since 2012. Ofsted has now called for it to end due to concerns about falling standards in classrooms. 

The latest data showed that more than half of previously outstanding schools lost their outstanding status at their most recent inspection. 56 schools dropped to the lowest mark ‘inadequate’ whilst another 159 dropped to ‘requires outstanding schools inspectionimprovement’. 1,203 schools dropped from outstanding to ‘good’. 

32% of students in Trafford, Greater Manchester, went to a school that had not been inspected for 10 years or more. The research showed 39 of its 94 schools were graded outstanding but 24 of those schools has not been inspected since at least 2009.
