The Mayor

Ofsted have not to date sought the GLA's assistance in performing its statutory function with regard to unregistered schools. The natural partners for Ofsted in dealing with unregistered schools in the capital are the London Boroughs, which carry educational responsibility. We have had no representations from boroughs suggesting there is a need for a strategic London-level intervention in handling unregistered schools.
