England School Inspections To Resume

School inspections in England will resume this week after a fortnight’s pause to give lead inspectors mental health awareness training.

The training was ordered by Ofsted’s new chief inspector, Martyn Oliver, who took up the role in January.

Head teachers, academy trustees and local authorities can also now ask for an inspection to be paused.

This follows an inquest into the suicide of ruth perry which found an inspection as a contributor to her death.

The senior coroner at mrs perry’s inquest, heidi connor warned of a risk of further deaths unless action is taken, and wrote a prevention of future deaths (pfd) notice.

It highlighted areas of concern including the almost complete absence of Ofsted training for inspectors looking for signs of distress in school leaders.
