Outcome of Section 8 OFSTED Inspection 28th February 2018

A section 8 inspection is a 1 day inspection which cannot change the overall grading of the school as such. However the inspectors on a section 8 inspection are able to state that they judge that should the school have undergone a more detailed section 5 inspection, that the school may have received an outstanding judgment. For more information see link to OFSTED hand book:

We are delighted to announce that EWS received this highest possible outcome and that the OFSTED team judged that EWS remains good, but may be outstanding.

This also means that we will have a more detailed Section 5 inspection within the next 2 years, which will give us an opportunity to convert formally to an outstanding grade.

The full outcome letter from OFSTED is available below along with the 2014 OFSTED inspection report..

Parents who wish to comment on the school to OFSTED are welcome to sign up to and complete the survey on OFSTED's parent view website

Parents may update their opinions as frequently as they choose to do so.
