Colchester primary schools’ Ofsted ratings

ALL schools strive to be the best, and the way to typically measure this is through Ofsted reports.

Ofsted – The Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills – is a non-ministerial department of the UK government.

The body visits schools for inspections, and over two full days, will spend most of their time observing lessons and talking to a range of pupils and staff about important aspects of the school’s work.

Following this, the school will be ranked ‘outstanding’, ‘good’, ‘requires improvement’ or ‘inadequate’.

A school judged ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ at its most recent inspection will normally receive an inspection approximately every four years, and this will be less if the school is of a lower rating.

Here are the primary schools in and around Colchester ranked good or ‘outstanding’ based on their latest published inspection, which can be full or short inspection visits.

There are some schools that are not yet ranked, this may be because:

  • a newly registered school hasn’t been inspected yet
  • an inspection has taken place recently, but the report hasn’t been published yet
  • a school that has recently become an academy may not have been inspected yet
  • an ‘outstanding’ school that has become an academy may be exempt from routine inspection.
