New inspection model try-outs
You may be aware that, following extensive consultation, Education Scotland tried out some new approaches to inspection in a sample of schools, and other establishments and services, in the course of the academic session 2015-16.
You can read more about the consultation and what we tried out in the Future of inspection and review pages.
From the feedback we received, and taking into account recent developments in education, we are introducing a menu of approaches to inspection from August 2016. These approaches will be introduced in a phased way. You can read more about this in Dr Maxwell's letter, below.
