Ofsted stands for the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills.
Ofsted are tasked with regulating and inspecting all schools across the country.
We are delighted to finally share with you our Ofsted Inspection in June 2018
As you will be aware we had a one day, Section 8 Inspection.
Since January 2018 all good schools receive a short one day inspection to ensure they remain at least good. An inspection now only converts to a two day Section 5 inspection the next day if there are concerns around the school and not if the school could possibly be graded higher.
The feedback and the report indicates that the school could now be graded as outstanding based on the demonstrated strong practice and marked improvement in specific areas which indicates that the school has improved significantly overall.
The inspector has asked that we have a two day section 5 inspection with the view to securing the outstanding mark. Therefore we will now be inspected within the next two academic years and not in the 3-5 years for good schools. As you can imagine we are all delighted with this outcome.
