Most 'good' schools will receive a short inspection in the first instance. Monitoring inspections apply to schools which were judged 'requires improvement' or 'inadequate' at their previous inspection.
Section 8 inspections do not result in a change in grade and inspectors' judgement on how the school is progressing is set out in a letter.
