King's Sutton Primary Academy is being Inspected by Ofsted on Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th June 2015.
What is Ofsted?
Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills.
They report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. They inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages. Every week, they carry out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England, and publish the results on their website.
The aim of all this work is to promote improvement and value for money in the services they inspect and regulate, so that children and young people, parents and carers, adult learners and employers benefit.
School Ofsted inspection reports will have information such as:
•how well inspectors think the school is doing and what it could do to makes 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 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)
Ofsted and Parent View
Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school.
Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. We will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when. By sharing your views, you’ll be helping your child’s school to improve. You will also be able to see what other parents have said about your child's school. Or, if you want to, view the results for any school in England.
