Ofsted report

What is an Ofsted report?

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. It 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
  • Inadequate

The school’s Ofsted rating

Our last full Ofsted inspection visit took place on the 21st May 2019.  The school remains ''Good'' and there is sufficient evidence of improved performance to suggest that the school might be judged outstanding if it received a section 5 inspection at the time of the section 8 inspection.  You can view the latest inspection report by clicking here
