MPs call for academy chains to face Ofsted inspection

November 7, 2013 2:36 pm

The Education Committee has published a report calling on Ofsted to be given powers to inspect organisations that run chains of academies. MPs on the committee called for academy chains should be open to inspection by Ofsted, in the way that local authorities can be inspected. The committee also argued there should be a mechanism to allow outstanding schools to leave academy chains, including without the approval of the organisation running the chain.
