Who are Ofsted and what do they do?
Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. They inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
The most recent assessment by Ofsted inspectors was in February 2018, when they carried out a short inspection. The school continues to be GOOD. Download the report here.
“Pupils are proud of their school. They appreciate the support that teachers give them to help them learn. Pupils are made to feel welcome, and those who arrive from other schools are helped to settle quickly.”
“Pupils talk confidently about how the school keeps them safe. They understand that routine procedures such as fire drills help keep them safe. They explain how staff listen and help solve problems when they occur. Pupils attend school regularly.”
“Leaders use regular meetings with teachers to discuss every pupil’s individual progress. The school’s tracking system shows that increasing numbers of pupils are working at the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics. This matches the evidence seen in pupils’ books.”
“Parents and carers are generally positive about the quality of education that their children receive. Parents commented on the happy nature of the school and how eager their children are to learn as result of the good provision you and your team provide.”
