Ofsted - 2019

It's official...we're GOOD!

We were visited by Ofsted for a two day inspection in September 2019.

We are delighted to share our recent OFSTED Inspection Report with you all. Following the inspection which took place on Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th September 2019 we were graded 'GOOD' in all areas. This is a huge achievement and recognition of how far the school has come and the hard work of everyone involved.

St Edward’s were one of the first schools in the country to be inspected under the new Inspection Framework which came into place on 2nd September 2019. The children fully embraced this opportunity to demonstrate everything that St Edward’s offers and it goes without saying that we are very proud of all of them.

The Inspection took account of the following areas:

  • The Quality of Education
  • Behaviour and Attitudes
  • Personal Development
  • Leadership and Management
  • Early Years

The report stated:

"Leaders have shown real determination in improving the quality of education in recent years.

"By the time pupils leave the school, the majority have achieved well in English and mathematics and are ready to start secondary school.

"Pupils enjoy coming to school. They told us that learning is fun and exciting. As one said 'we love school. It's awesome!"

The report states that pupils feel safe in the school, having told inspectors that adults "take good care of them".


The school is continually grateful for the unwavering  support of our families, particularly over the last few years.

Our staff work incredibly hard and strive to do the very best for every child in their care. Our children are wonderful examples of everything St Edward's embodies and we are always tremendously proud of them.

This recognition from OFSTED is very much deserved and marks an exciting time for St Edward’s. Our expectations remain high as we look forward to further achievements and successes.
