Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They inspect services providing education and skills for learners of all ages and those which care for children and young people. Every week, they carry out many inspections and regulatory visits throughout England. Schools previously judged to be ‘good’ will normally receive a two-day inspection approximately every four years.
As a school we are always evaluating ourselves against the criteria Ofsted outline as effective practice for schools. From September 2019, a new Ofsted framework will provide the guidelines for inspection and as well as judging their overall effectiveness, Ofsted will grade schools in these areas using a four point scale:
They will also inspect the Early Years and will check that safeguarding arrangements are good.
