Proud to be an FMAT Academy

Our Academy


All state-maintained schools in England are inspected by Ofsted. This includes local authority-run schools, academies and free schools, as well as non-maintained special schools, pupil referral units and further education/sixth form colleges. Ofsted also inspects some independent schools 

 School inspection is currently set out in legislation through the Education Act 2005. In this act, the regular two-day inspection is described as a Section 5 inspection and ‘other inspection’ is described as a Section 8 inspection (in England). This includes the new ‘short inspection’ of schools graded ‘Good’.

 Schools that are rated Requires Improvementusually have a full re-inspection within 30 months. 

Schools rated Inadequatehave more regular monitoring, alongside support to improve their rating. 

 Ofsted inspectors look at four main areas: 

Schools receive a judgement for each of the four inspection areas, and an overall judgement. There are four numerical grades:
