Number of schools engaging with inspections

Simon whittaker made this Freedom of Information request to Department of Education (Northern Ireland)

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department of Education (Northern Ireland),

Please can you provide me with details regarding how schools are engaging with the ETI inspections.

Ideally I would like to see a list of schools and whether they have fully supported the inspections (not just the child safeguarding requirements). I would ideally like this to indicate whether teachers engaged fully with inspectors or whether they refused and also those cases where the principals have refused to take part. I would like this data as a spreadsheet for 2016 onwards.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Simon whittaker

Dear DE inspectionservices,

Thank you for the note dated 20th January which advises me to go and look on the website. You have specified that this is available on the website but I am under the impression that you are storing the information in collated format like the following:

|Date of Inspection | School | Principal has engaged with Inspector?(Yes/No/Partially) | Teachers engaged with Inspector?(Yes/No/Partially)

Please can you advise whether this information is available in this or similar format, I believe that this is information which is important for the public to know and should be released with all due haste and speed.

I hope that you will be able to provide me with an answer at your earliest convenience.

Yours sincerely,

Simon whittaker
