Ofsted has published an operational note for Her Majesty’s Inspectors carrying out interim visits to state-funded schools from 28 September 2020 to December 2020. The operational note lays out the process and activities inspectors will carry out before, during and after the interim visits. The visits, which will take place in approximately 1,200 schools, are to ‘reassure and inform parents, government and the public about how schools are managing the return to full education for all pupils’ after the suspension due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The interim visits will take place under section 8(2) of the Education Act 2005.
