Ofsted Reports

Ofsted, the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills, is a government body set up to inspect schools and other childcare/educational institutions and judge their effectiveness. Schools are inspected every few years. Not all institutions are inspected by Ofsted. Some independent schools, preschools and post 16 institutions and universities are not subject to inspection. You can find out more about Ofsted at www.ofsted.gov.uk.

Ofsted publishes its findings in reports, which contain both a written description and appraisal of the school, and a series of judgements of the school's effectiveness in a wide range of areas for example, academic standards; pupil behaviour; school leadership etc.

In each area schools are judged on a score from 1 to 4, where:

1 = Outstanding
2 = Good
3 = Requires Improvement
4 = Unsatisfactory

As a Voluntary Aided Catholic School, the teaching of RE at St Joseph's is not inspected by Ofsted, as this is the responsibility of the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton Schools Service.
