Ofsted is the UK’s Office of Education Standards and is responsible for examining a range of educational facilities.

Inspections of educational facilities have been halted or postponed for most schools in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but data for 2021 has been published on the Education Watch website and is available for viewing.

The agency completed inspections over the course of this year and announced that full inspections, like pre-pandemic inspections, will take place from fall 2021.

Schools are ranked on a four-point scale.

  • Class 1 (Excellent)
  • Grade 2 (Good)
  • Grade 3 (requires improvement)
  • Grade 4 (adequate)

When a school is rated as ‘requiring improvement’, it means that the quality of education provided to the children of the school is acceptable but needs some improvement.

A school classified as “unsuitable” is the worst rating a school can have and is given when an educational institution fails to provide an adequate quality of education and care for the children who attend school.

Schools classified as unsuitable are expected to make drastic changes, and usually undergo another full examination in three years.

Public schools are also required to become academies if they are given this rating.

Academies are public schools as well, but they receive funding directly from the government rather than the Education Education Authority and have more control over how the school is run.
