Inspections

Share this page

A new school and College of Further Education external education inspection agreement is now in place with the first inspections expected to take place before the end of 2021.

Schools in Guernsey and Alderney were previously inspected under a framework used by Education Scotland but this arrangement ceased more than two years ago, during which time there have been no external inspections in place.

A great deal of work - including specific training for Head Teachers, Principals and key staff - has been undertaken to prepare schools and the College of FE for this new standards framework and to ensure that inspection handbooks for Guernsey and Alderney retain fidelity to the research-based methodology behind Ofsted's new inspection process but also take into account the unique and specific differences between the education system in England and that of the Bailiwick.

The main purpose of school inspections is to provide all stakeholders and especially parents/carers, school staff, the Committee in its role as governors and the Education Office, with an independent and rigorous assessment of school performance and to drive further improvement across the system.

Inspection handbooks, which provide significant detail around the Bailiwick's inspection framework can be found on the downloads section of this page.
