HMI Experience of Leading Challenging Schools

Margaret Marshall made this Freedom of Information request to Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Dear Office for Standards in Education,

I would like to know how many current HMI have sucessful experience of leading challenging urban schools. In detail I should like to ascertain how many have recent (within the past 5 Years) Headship experience(not other Senior Leadership Roles)in challenging schools in urban environments. These would be people that had led schools that had OFSTED judgements of "Outstanding" in schools that they led prior to appointment as HMI.

Please could you also disclose the roles by school leadership category that HMIs held prior to appointment to her Majestys Inspectorate.

I would like the same breakdown of information for Additional Inspectors that are employed by third party contractors such as CFBT.

I would also like to know the school leadership experience of the Senior Leadership of OFSTED, apart from HMCI.

Yours faithfully,

Margaret Marshall

Dear Office for Standards in Education,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Office for Standards in Education's handling of my FOI request 'HMI Experience of Leading Challenging Schools'.

I believe that your response is not credible. This is because when inspectors are allocated to a team information about their background is made available to the provider. So, if you do not hold this information how is the above process possible.

I believe that you are deliberately trying to obstruct my request as you feel that public access to this information would harm the image of OFSTED.

In the event of an internal review failing I shall refer the matter to the Information Commissioner and make representations to my MP.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,
