The 1992 Education (Schools) Act set up a system of school inspections by the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (Ofsted). The reports written by independent inspection teams and published by Ofsted are made public and the inspections are carried out according to a National Framework to ensure consistency across the country. Subsequently the legislation was brought together in the School Inspections Act 1996 that designated it to be a six-year cycle.[1]
