Ofsted reports

Ofsted (the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills) is the government department that inspects and regulates care and educational services for children and young people.

Ofsted inspects all English maintained schools and academies at least once every three years. It then publishes a public report on the school’s performance, students’ work, observation reports on lessons and views from staff, parents and students, and makes suggestions for improvements that the school is expected to put into practice. The report makes judgements on:

  • achievements and standards
  • pupils’ development and wellbeing
  • the quality of teaching and learning
  • how the curriculum is taught
  • the care, guidance and support the school provides
  • how well the school is led and managed.

Schools are rated on a four-point scale: Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement and Inadequate.

Our last full Ofsted inspection visit took place in December 2016. We were judged as a ‘Good’ school, ‘Outstanding in Leadership and Management. You can view the inspection report by clicking here
