Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. Ofsted inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages.

As a new school, we will have an Ofsted inspection within 3 years of opening.

In the meantime, we take advantage of Star’s proven school improvement system, which has delivered outstanding outcomes in other Star schools.

Pupil achievement and attainment and teaching standards are kept under constant review and we carry out regular self-evaluations. We also get regular visits from our Star Quality Assurer (SQA), a highly experienced educationalist. The SQA quality-assures our self-evaluations and supports and challenges us to make sure we stay on track for Ofsted success.
