Nottingham Nisai Learning Hub shines in OFSTED inspection – Achieving ‘Good with Outstanding Features’
At the end of May, it was published that private Alternative Providers get worse OFSTED results than council-run provision. Not in the case of the Nisai Group. There are 117 private alternative providers currently open, of which 110 are under OFSTED’s remit, and the rest are under the Independent Schools Inspectorate. Of the 97 already inspected by OFSTED, only 71% are ‘good’ or better – compared with 89% of the more than 300 pupil referral units across the country.
