|External Monitoring of School Performance
Other external professionals coming into our school to evaluate what we do is an important element of our quality assurance system. They are able to provide a 'critical eye' and test out our judgements as to how we think the school is performing, in relation to local and national trends.
External monitoring can take many different forms, however, the most common external judgement on a school is that of an Ofsted Section 5 Inspection (Ofsted is an abbreviation for the Office of Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills), who are an independent organisation reporting directly to Parliament.
Ofsted inspectors not only make judgements on what the school needs to do to improve, they also report on the quality of education in four key areas:
- Achievement of Pupils
- Leadership and Management
- Behaviour and Safety.
