The NUT Edufacts sheet on School Inspection provides an outline of some key issues.
A short briefing paper on Ofsted (Terry Wrigley) brings together important information and sources concerning Ofsted’s
- interference in policy questions
- impact on teaching
and the alternative of well supported school self-evaluation.

Teachers taking back responsibility he contrasts consequences of the high-stakes Ofsted regime with the self-critical enquiry associated with self-evaluation.
