Ofsted & Data


Here we have some basic information about our school:

Ofsted Inspection Report

School inspection reports will have information such as:

  • how well inspectors think the school is doing and what it could do to make things even better
  • how well pupils are doing, both in their education and their overall well-being and personal development
  • what parents and carers think about the school
  • how up to date the school buildings are, including any boarding school living accommodation
  • how any problems or complaints are dealt with
  • how the school complies with rules and regulations.

The school inspection report often helps parents and carers decide if they want to send their child to the school. In particular it includes an overall score for how good a school is:

  • grade 1 (outstanding)
  • grade 2 (good)
  • grade 3 (requires improvement)
  • grade 4 (inadequate)

What is in the report and how long it is will depend on the type of inspection the school has received.

Church of England School Inspection

Church of England schools are established primarily for the communities they are located in. They are inclusive and serve equally those who are of the Christian faith, those of other faiths and those with no faith.

Church schools are recognised for their distinctive Christian ethos and the impact this has on standards and all round education. The proportions of Church schools regarded as ‘outstanding’ (by Ofsted) is much higher than the national norm and yet the Church schools are fully inclusive.

School Data

All state primary pupils in England are tested at the end of Key Stage 1 (Year 2) and Key Stage 2 (Year 6). Many schools run ‘unofficial’ optional SATs in years 3 to 5 as well.

Year 6 children take their tests on set dates in mid-May. Results are then submitted to the school’s local authority and to parents by the end of the summer term.

Things work a little differently for year 2 children now – it used to be that their results were solely based on the tests but there’s been a move towards teachers making a general judgement (‘teacher assessment’). They will use the test scores to inform this, alongside other evidence, such as the understanding shown by pupils in their classwork. The tests can be given to children at any time during the year and they shouldn’t be particularly aware of what they’re used for or their significance – most schools keep things very low key.
