Sheffield schools: All Ofsted reports for Sheffield's schools and nurseries in March 2024

It was another decent month for Sheffield's schools and nurseries in terms of their Ofsted reports.

None of Sheffield's schools and nurseries inspected by Ofsted in the past month saw their grades go down below 'Good'.

It's been another decent month for the Steel City's classrooms who got their latest ratings from the education watchdog.

Out of the schools and nurseries with new reports in the past four weeks (February 22 - March 22), none saw their ratings formally downgraded to 'Requires Improvement' or 'Inadequate'.

The only formal downgrade was Children 1st @ Sheffield, a nursery that lost its 'Outstanding' grade but was still handed high praise and rated 'Good.'

Meanwhile, Springwood Junior Academy, in Aughton Lane, was praised in an ungraded Section 8 visit - but told it may not retain its 'Outstanding' rating at its next full inspection.

Fir Vale School, in Owler Lane, is still working to come back from a 'Requires Improvement' rating it earned in March 2019. Now, five years later, inspectors say improvements are still being made but they have work to do yet.

See our gallery below for all the Sheffield schools and nurseries that had a new Ofsted report in the past month, what they received and what inspectors said.
