One in 20 children in England is in a school that has not been inspected for more than 10 years, the BBC has found.

Analysis of official data revealed 24 schools had gone without inspection for more than 13 years.

There are 1,010 "outstanding" schools that have not had a visit from Ofsted in a decade - up from 296 in 2017.

The National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) said inspecting all schools would ensure they were not "failing or at risk of decline"

Meanwhile, the Labour party has said it would scrap Ofsted if it won the next general election.
