BSME Members must undertake accreditation to maintain membership, governed by the following principles:
- Accreditation must be carried out by one of the three external inspectorates approved by the Department for Education (DfE) and monitored by Ofsted.
- The purpose of inspection is school improvement; the accreditation process and framework/s must reflect this.
- We will collaborate with other member organisations who share our philosophy of excellence to the benefit of our members.
Schools may, therefore, choose any one of the following options to secure 'Accredited Membership' status.
