Somerset schools named “Outstanding” by Ofsted Bath City News

Ofsted has announced that its full program of graduate school inspections will resume this fall.

The government department, which is responsible for inspecting schools and other children’s social services, resumed surveillance inspections in May, after suspending operations during the coronavirus pandemic.

Follow-up inspections focused on schools rated “insufficient” and “in need of improvement” during their last two full inspections.

A spokesperson for Ofsted said: “We will continue to prioritize inspections of all schools where significant concerns are raised, if necessary.”

Schools that receive an “exceptional” rating are exempt from regular Ofsted inspections, but they can also request an inspection.

An exceptional school grade means that they are providing “the highest quality education and care for their children.”

There are four possible Ofsted ratings that a school can receive. These Ofsted scores are based on four Ofsted categories: educational quality, behavior and attitudes, student personal development, and leadership and management.

When Ofsted goes for a full inspection, they provide a grade as well as a report, which gives schools feedback on how to move forward and encourage good practice.

Here is the full list of schools in Somerset that currently hold an ‘Outstanding’ rating:
