North Baddesley Infant School

Happy, valued and growing together



The Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (OFSTED) inspects and regulates the care of children and young people, and the education and skills of learners of all ages.

Our last Ofsted inspection in January 2012 found us to be outstanding in each of the four key inspection areas and outstanding overall. We appreciate that this was several years ago and would therefore like to provide additional context to parents regarding this. Although we have not had a recent routine inspection, Ofsted undertake an annual 'desktop audit' of every outstanding school. This audit trail includes data analysis, a review of public information about the school and responses on Parentview. From September 2015 there have also been changes to how Ofsted inspect schools. There is a new Common Inspection Framework (CIF), for use with all education providers and new guidance on when good and outstanding schools will be visited. Currently any school judged to be 'outstanding' at their last inspection will continue to be exempt from routine inspection, but Ofsted will retain the power to inspect if the school’s performance alters or concerns are raised and the school will in the first instance be subject to a new, shorter one day monitoring inspection. Outstanding schools may also be inspected as part of Ofsted’s survey work.
