On the 25th September 2018, St. Edward’s underwent a one day section 8 Ofsted inspection.

As a result of this inspection, there is no change to the school’s current overall effectiveness grade of ‘good’. 

Ofsted has identified some priorities for improvement, which we have already begun to address.

On October 2nd and 3rd 2014, St. Edward's was inspected by Ofsted.  During this inspection we were judged 'Good' in all categories.

Our Ofsted report is very clear that:

  • Consistently good teaching across all the school is enabling pupils to make good progress. As a result their attainment is rising rapidly.

  • Pupils are happy and confident. They say how safe they feel in school. Their parents strongly agree that the school does everything it can for the welfare of their children.

  • School leaders continuously focus on improving the quality of teaching.

  • The governing body is well led, highly effective and much improved.

Governors and all staff are committed to continuing to build on these strengths.
