After a year of lockdowns and disruption during the pandemic, parents across the city are hoping for a smoother year with more time spent in school – although both teachers and parents alike have done an incredible job of home-schooling over the last year.

There are a number of performance indicators to help monitor schools’ progress and give parents an indication of what they can expect from child’s school.

This is the Ofsted rating for every secondary school in Sheffield, as stated on the official Government website.

One of the biggest indicators is the school’s Ofsted rating.

Ofsted inspects every service ‘providing education and skills for learners of all ages’ and rate them as either ‘outstanding’, ‘good’, ‘requires improvement’ or ‘inadequate’.

The schools are rated on a number of factors including the opportunity for child development and the quality of education provided.

Ofsted inspectors visit schools for two days and observe children in the classroom, as well as looking at other, more ‘behind-the-scenes’ operations, like the budget, before publishing their report.

If a school receives a ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ rating, inspectors usually do not need to return for the next four years.

Those which receive a rating of ‘requires improvement’ usually receive another visit within 30 months, while schools judged 'inadequate' are monitored closely for several months, with a full inspection usually taking place again within 30 months.

Here is the Ofsted rating for every secondary school in Sheffield – and you can read the full report on the Government website here.

Please note that some schools do not have a current Ofsted rating displayed on the Government website and so are not included.

It is also worth noting that inspections were put on hold during the pandemic, so some inspections which were due over the last two years may not have been completed – but these are due to start up again fully in November.
