Sheffield Primary: These are the schools that have earned 'Outstanding' despite Ofsted tougher rules in 2019

These are the Sheffield schools rated the best for children despite tough new standards.

These are the Sheffield schools that have proven they offer the very best for children.

There was some concern things would be too tough in 2019 when the Government rolled out the 'education inspection framework' - the new standard that schools would be inspected by.

Prior to this, schools rated 'Outstanding' would not be scheduled for any more inspections at all - leading to some not receiving a fresh pair of eyes for well over 10 years.

In recent years a number of Sheffield's 'Outstanding' schools have been downgraded to 'Good' under the new framework, and more have been told they may not keep their rating at their next Ofsted visit.

But for the schools that have maintained or earned an 'Oustanding' rating since then, it means they have stood the test and proven they are the best of the best.

These are the Sheffield primary schools that have earned or kept their 'Outstanding' colours since the framework in 2019, and along with what inspectors had to say about them.
