How to ensure consistent compliance with the Independent School Standards

The latest Ofsted statistics show that:

• 26% of Independent Schools that had a standard inspection between September 2021 and July 2022 failed to meet the standards.

• 59% of those that had a progress monitoring inspection during the same period failed to demonstrate that they had addressed previously un-met standards.

Through our work with independent schools, we know why schools fail to meet the requirements of the standards. We have developed a proven strategy to ensure consistent compliance. We’re sharing this strategy through this workshop for Headteachers and SLTs.

Find out how to ensure consistent compliance with the independent school standards at this workshop. Come to The Studio in Birmingham on the 12th of December 2022. Get: 

  • an introduction to the Independent School Standards


  • the impact of non-compliance with the standards


  • why a significant number of schools fail to meet the standards and which standards they fail to meet


  • a strategy for ensuring consistent compliance with the standards


  • a useful audit tool
