Sheffield schools Ofsted: All latest ratings by inspectors for schools and nurseries

A very positive month for Sheffield's schools and nurseries, with quite a few upgraded back up to 'Good'.

It was a strong month for Ofsted reports for Sheffield's schools and nurseries across September and October.

There were some great success stories coming out of the Steel City's classrooms in the past month according to inspectors.

They included Meynell Community Primary School, which after holding on to a 'Requires Improvement' rating since 2015 has now been upgraded to 'Good' and praised as "a school in which pupils develop a sense of emotional and physical safety".

There was also Marsh Lane Primary School, which with the latest report has now been rated 'Good' for 14 years straight.

And Sheffield Woodland Kindergarten, which in February 2022 was rated 'Inadequate', has been rated 'Good' once again after 18 months of work.

In a story that will be one to watch, the one Sheffield nursery on this list that was rated 'Inadequate' - Hackenthorpe Hall Nursery - was massively supported by its parents after the report. Its manager, Emma Brown, has rejected the findings and is taking her complaints all the way to Parliament.

Here are all the Ofsted ratings published for Sheffield’s schools and nurseries between August 15 and September 19, 2023.
