A school inspection is a process of evidence gathering in order to provide an assessment of how well a school is performing. Inspections are short and focused, and dialogue with senior managers in the school plays a central part.
The school's self evaluation provides the starting point for inspectors, and account is taken of the views of pupils, parents and other stakeholders. Inspections are conducted by a lead inspector (HMI or AI) and a team of inspectors and must result in a written report.
