Independent School Regulatory System

05/06/2018
ASCL welcomes the more detailed guidance and its generally helpful and explicit approach. However, there are concerns that at times it is so directional and specifically linked to inspection and DfE registration requirements that there is a danger of it becoming regulation instead of ‘advice’. There is a fine balance to be struck between the laudable aim of ensuing high standards in all in schools and not removing the independence of non-maintained schools.
