What can a school or individual teacher do if they think any inspection judgement is unfair?

Neither the school nor a teacher can challenge judgments simply because they disagree with them.  The school can only challenge the inspection team’s findings on the grounds of factual inaccuracy, if they believe that the inspection was not carried out in accordance with the code of conduct or if inspectors did not consider an appropriate sample of relevant evidence before making judgements.  Further information about our complaints policy can be found here.
