Sheffield schools: All the latest Ofsted ratings for Sheffield's schools and nurseries

It could be a good omen to see so many of Sheffield’s schools recently earn a ‘Good' rating from Ofsted in the middle of GCSE season.

It was a strong month for Sheffield’s schools and nurseries with a bevy of positive ratings from the education watchdog. Among the success stories was Bole Hill Nursery, which was sent reeling six months ago by an ‘Inadequate’ report that parents strongly contested – only for them to regain their ‘Good’ rating in a new report on June 20.

There was also Hatfield Academy, in Hatfield House Lane, which after a long improvement journey – including being rated ‘Inadequate’ in 2015, then ‘Requires Improvement’ in 2019 – has now been rated Good in all areas and praised as a school where pupils are “proud of their work”.

Less favourable was the special school Holgate Meadows, which was rated Inadequate last year and sadly remains in special measures as of an interim visit this month. Very shortly after it was published, the school announced it would be making redundancies among its teaching assistants and support staff in the face of ‘significant financial difficulties’.

Here are all the Ofsted ratings published for Sheffield’s schools and nurseries between May 20 and June 20, 2023.
