Government publishes more warning notices about underperforming private schools.

The government has published more warning notices that it has issued to underperforming private schools, two years after a Schools Week campaign first pressed to make them public.

The Department for Education has finally released notices sent to seven private schools last year, after Ofsted revealed “serious regulatory” failings around safety in all of them.

The notices follow nine that were published in February this year. All 16 notices were sent to the schools between September and October last year, after they failed to meet the independent school standards, but have only just been made public.

Of the seven schools whose notices were published today, all were rated ‘inadequate’ at their most recent full inspection, and in all cases inspectors found safety to be substandard.

Now the DfE has warned each school they must submit an action plan with “reasonable timescales for implementation” or face being struck off the register for independent schools and closed, or face restrictions on their operation (such as being forbidden from admitting more pupils).
