Ofsted & Skinners’ Development Plan

What is Ofsted?

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. It reports directly to Parliament and is independent and impartial. Ofsted inspects and regulates services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.

On 22 March 2017 Skinners’ Academy welcomed a short Ofsted inspection and the report became available in early-May 2017.

The Academy’s first full inspection took place 19-20 June 2013. Click Here if you would like to see the 2013 Ofsted Report.
