What is Ofsted and what does it do?
Ofsted (the Office for Standards, Children's Services and Skills) inspects and reports on the quality and provision of education in schools. Schools are provided with judgements on the following areas: overall effectiveness; quality of education; behaviour and attitudes; personal development, leadership and management and early years.
Schools are given an overall judgement grade - outstanding; good; requires improvement; inadequate.
Why do Ofsted inspect schools?
Ofsted inspects schools to provide parents/carers with information about the quality of education and overall effectiveness of the school. The Ofsted judgements are given to promote improvement, as well as to hold schools to account for spending the public money they receive.
What kind of inspection does a school have?
There are two kinds of inspections - graded and ungraded.
Our next school inspection will be a graded inspection.
What is Parent View?
Ofsted Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think of your child's school. It is an opportunity to celebrate strengths of the school and provide constructive feedback.
