Ofsted

Ben Swain

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages. We help providers that are not yet of good standard to improve, monitor their progress and share with them the best practice we find.

Schools are usually inspected on a 3 year cycle. During an inspection different aspects of the school are inspected and graded from 1 to 4, with an overall grade is awarded for the school.

  1. Outstanding
  2. Good
  3. Requires Improvement
  4. Inadequate

Ofsted are responsible for:

  • inspecting maintained schools and academies, some independent schools, and many other educational institutions and programmes outside of higher education
  • inspecting childcare, adoption and fostering agencies and initial teacher training
  • publishing reports of our findings so they can be used to improve the overall quality of education and training
  • regulating a range of early years and children’s social care services, making sure they’re suitable for children and potentially vulnerable young people
  • reporting to policymakers on the effectiveness of these service

In our most recent Ofsted inspection, we were graded outstanding. The inspection report can be found by clicking below.
