Ofsted reports back to North Somerset Council following focused inspections

Following the recent inspections of 17 schools in North Somerset between March and April 2014, Ofsted has written to North Somerset Council to advise it of the findings.

The focused inspections are part of a concerted programme of action by Ofsted to establish why children in some parts of the country have a much lower chance of attending a good or better school than their peers in other similar areas.

In North Somerset, Ofsted’s main concern centres on the comparatively low number of good or outstanding primary schools in the area.

Following the focused inspection activity the schools’ performance has improved where:

  • two were judged outstanding
  • 12 judged good
  • three judged requires improvement.

The letter sent to the local authority has been published on North Somerset's page on the Ofsted’s website.
