Department of Education Information
Ofsted inspect schools to provide information to parents, to promote improvement and to hold schools to account for the public money they receive.
When Ofsted has judged a school to be good or outstanding they will then normally go into the school about once every four years to confirm that the school remains good or outstanding and that safeguarding is effective.
Inspectors will make graded judgements on overall effectiveness and the four key judgements:
- the quality of education
- behaviour and attitudes
- personal development
- leadership and management
Inspectors use the following four-point scale to make all judgements:
- grade 1 (outstanding)
- grade 2 (good)
- grade 3 (requires improvement)
- grade 4 (inadequate).
Langdale CE Primary School is graded ‘Good’ with Ofsted inspectors noting:
Please find below our most recent Ofsted report and relevant information from the Department for Education Performance Tables.
If you are the registered parent of a child at the school, the school will send you a letter notifying you of the dates of the inspection. This letter provides you with details and options for providing your views.
Ofsted produce a Guide for Parents which provides more information.
Please find below our most recent Ofsted report, assessed under the old standard, and relevant information from the Department for Education Performance Tables.
The school continues to be good with Ofsted inspectors noting:-
"One parent said to me, ‘My child comes home from school inspired.’ Parents say their children ‘just love school’ and they are clearly very happy, confident and thriving".
"The curriculum is rich. Teachers take full advantage of the surrounding environment and community to enthuse pupils and systematically build their personal development."
"The behaviour of pupils is excellent because they are taught what it is to be a ‘Langdale Learner’"
