Ofsted inspects all state schools in England at least every three years. The inspection leads to a published report. In assessing a school, inspectors consider a range of evidence drawn from:
the school’s self-evaluation (the school’s assessment of its own performance)
- performance data
- pupils’ work
- lesson observations
- input from parents
- discussion with pupils and staff
The inspection report includes an overall judgement on the effectiveness of the school, as well as specific judgements on:
- achievement and standards
- pupils’ personal development and well-beingthe quality of teaching and learning
- curriculum provision
- the care, guidance and support provided by the school
- the leadership and management of the school
The report also indicates what the school should do to improve. The school is expected to use Ofsted’s recommendations as a basis for making improvements as quickly as possible.
