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.
The inspection of a school provides an independent external evaluation of its effectiveness and a diagnosis of what it should do to improve. A typical inspection has one or more inspectors visiting a provider to find out about them. The inspection will follow a framework and report on particular aspects of the provision.
After the inspection Ofsted tell you what they found out in an inspection report. Ofsted publish these reports on their website, and in some cases, the provider has to provide the report on request.
The content of a report will depend on the type of inspection. An inspection report will describe the provider, then go on to tell you about our inspection findings and judgements with the grades given by the inspector.
We continue to be a good school.

Ofsted Parent View
Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about our school.
Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of our school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. If you have any comments or concerns we would encourage you to speak to Miss Harrington before completing Parent View as we will be able to address your comments. Ofsted do not investigate concerns but use the data as a barometer of satisfaction of our school

The Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) process has been devised by the National Society to standardise inspection practices and judgements in all Church of England and Methodist Schools and to meet the requirements of Section 48 of the Education Act 2005.
SIAMS/S48 judges the distinctiveness and effectiveness of the school as a Church of England school and aims to help schools improve as church schools.
The main focus is in the outcomes, i.e. the impact of provision rather than the provision itself.
There are four key questions:
- How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
- What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
- How effective is the religious education?
- How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?
Woodchurch CE Primary School was most recently inspected by SIAS in November 2016.
Our denominational inspection graded us a ‘Good’ Church of England School.
