Information about inspections

All state-maintained schools in England are regularly inspected by Ofsted. This includes local authority-run schools, academies and free schools.

Ofsted make judgements on FOUR key areas:

  • The effectiveness of leadership and management
  • The quality of teaching, learning and assessment
  • Personal development, behaviour and welfare
  • Outcomes for pupils

Schools are then given an overall grade from 1 to 4:

  • Grade 1 – outstanding
  • Grade 2 – good
  • Grade 3 – requires improvement
  • Grade 4 – inadequate

If you would like to know more about inspection reports, Ofsted have written a useful guide for parents and carers. You can find the latest version at:
