An audit tool for use by school leaders to accurately evaluate the extent to which their schools meet the requirements of the Independent School Standards (2014). This tool was created with reference to Ofsted and DfE guidance:
It is written in plain English. The wording of the standards is not included on this document. Instead, for each standard, there is a set of questions that require a yes/no response to determine if your school meets the requirements of the standard.
In order to get an accurate picture of your school’s compliance it is important to answer the questions honestly, ensuring that your response can be backed up with evidence and that your daily practice supports your responses.
This document is not presented as definitive guidance on the meaning of the standards themselves, only a court can do that.
