The NASUWT is clear that inspection should be undertaken in a way that supports the work of teachers and school leaders in raising standards and ensuring that all children and young people can access their right to high-quality learning experiences.

The NASUWT recognises that inspection can be challenging and has produced practical tools that you can use to assess the appropriateness of the way in which inspection is undertaken in your school or setting.

The Scottish Government’s National Improvement Framework has resulted in significant changes to the school accountability system.
