In Scotland, almost a third of all primary schools have not been inspected in a decade or more. These seven schools across the country have gone the longest without an official inspection.
A spokesperson from Education Scotland said: “Schools are selected for inspection each year on a proportionate basis, using a sampling approach and predetermined set criteria rather than a cyclical approach.
“In Scotland, overall responsibility for the quality of education and securing continuous improvement sits with the local authority.
"There is a three-level approach to evaluating and improving education: schools have a responsibility to evaluate their performance; local authorities have responsibility for the quality of education in their area; and the third level is scrutiny activity carried out by HM Inspectors of Education."
