Our recent inspection was based on the new Inspection Advice Note August 2014 which sets out the (raised) adjustment in expectations, in line with national implementation expectations.
Three key questions:
How well do children learn and achieve?
- Improvements in performance
- Learners’ experiences
How well does the school support children to develop and learn?
- Meeting learning needs
How well does the school improve the quality of its work?
- Improvement through self-evaluation
The following word scale is used in reports so that readers can see clearly what judgments mean.
Excellent means outstanding, sector leading.
Very good/positive/effective, Sound, Quality, Commendable mean major strengths.
Good means important strengths with some areas for improvement.
Satisfactory means strengths just outweigh weaknesses
Weak means important weaknesses
Unsatisfactory means major weaknesses
