Risk-based Inspection as of 2009

Primary and secondary education

This inspection framework as of 2009 replaces the inspection frameworks that were drawn up for primary education in 2005 and for secondary education in 2006. One of the key modifications is that we are now working in a risk-oriented manner. High-risk schools receive increased inspection, whereas no-risk schools receive less inspection. We have thus customised our inspection.

Another major change is that we now regard the school board as our primary contact rather than the school head. Chapter 2 explains our procedures. The indicators on which the Inspectorate bases its assessments have been updated as well, but without any fundamental changes. This is explained in Chapter 3.
