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.

Overall effectiveness: Good

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 Mrs Dawes 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.
