About Ofsted Reports

Ofsted Logo
Ofsted carry out full regulatory inspections of schools and educational institutions throughout England. Reporting to the UK government, Ofsted are both impartial and independent, and inspect institutions that care for young people and children, as well as organisations that provide education or skills for people of all ages.

Ofsted inspects education providers, children's services and organisations that provide education or skills. One or more Ofsted inspectors visit a provider to inspect the quality of teaching, the levels of achievement that pupils achieve, the behaviour of those who are in attendance, and the effectiveness of teaching that schools provide to their pupils.

A typical Ofsted report will contain information about how well their inspectors think that a school is performing, as well as ways that it can improve certain areas. It also includes data on how well students are performing, both in their general education and their well-being. In addition, Ofsted inspectors will include feedback from parents and carers about their views and opinions of the school.

In order to produce a useful tool for improvement, inspectors will give a school an overall grade for how good they think a school is:

  • Grade 1 - Outstanding
  • Grade 2 - Good
  • Grade 3 - Requires improvement
  • Grade 4 - Inadequate


Should a school be judged as 'requires improvement' or 'inadequate', then the Ofsted report will explain why the grade was given, as well as ways how the school can improve their grade.
