About Ofsted

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. It reports directly to Parliament and is both independent and impartial. By law it must inspect schools with the aim of providing information to parents, to promote improvement and to hold schools to account.

Their role is to make sure that organisations providing education, training and care services in England do so to a high standard for children and pupils. Details on how Ofsted inspects schools and academies can be found here.

Parent View

Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about Ormiston Meadows Primary Academy and by sharing your views, you’ll be helping us to improve. The latest Parent View survey shows that 100% of our parents would recommend Ormiston Meadows to other parents.

Parent View asks for your opinion on aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. We will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when. A screencast demonstrating how to register and complete a survey on Parent View is available on the How to use Parent View page.

"The principal has high expectations of staff and pupils. Working with an effective leadership team, there is a strong drive to ensure that the school continually improves.

"The proactive work of the pastoral team provides good support for both families and pupils. Pupils feel safe and are well cared for.

"Children in the early years get off to a good start to their education. Leaders plan provision well so that children thrive in the nurturing environment.

"Relationships between adults and pupils are positive. They are built upon mutual respect that encourages pupils’ confidence and self-esteem.

"The curriculum makes good provision for pupils’ social, moral, cultural and spiritual development. Different roles and responsibilities promote pupils’ understanding of living in a modern British community."
