CMS Secures Best Possible Outcome From One Day Ofsted Inspection
We are delighted to be able to share our Ofsted report with you. As we were previously recognised by Ofsted as being a ‘good’ school, this was a one day short inspection. There are 4 possible outcomes:
- Outcome 1 – the school continues to be a good school.
- Outcome 2 – the school remains good and there is sufficient evidence of improved performance to suggest that the school may be judged outstanding if it received a Section 5 two day inspection now.
- Outcome 3 – the lead inspector is not satisfied that the school would receive at least its current grade if a section 5 inspection were carried out now.
- Outcome 4 – the lead inspector has gathered evidence that suggests the school may be inadequate in one or more of the graded judgements under section 5 inspections.
