Schools in England could be in line for much shorter Ofsted inspections, in a shake-up proposed by chief inspector of schools Mike Tomlinson.

As part of a wider review of the future arrangements for school inspections from 2003, the schools watchdog has began a three-month consultation on 16 proposals for change. A report proposed three models for the future of inspection: retaining the status quo of a mix of long and short inspections, with more of the latter over time; a three tier system of short, extended and full visits; or a flexible structure tailored to individual schools. Mr Tomlinson favours the tailored option.
