Totley Primary celebrating their excellent OFSTED report

Up-to-date inspection reports of every school in Sheffield reveal that 77.1 per cent of city primaries and 65.5 per cent of secondaries have received one of the top two ratings.

But the figures reveal that some schools have not been visited by Ofsted in almost 10 years.

Out of 26 Sheffield secondary schools, four are outstanding, 13 are good, five require improvement and four schools are rated inadequate.

The outstanding secondary schools are Silverdale, Ecclesall; King Ecgbert, Dore; Tapton, Crosspool; and Notre Dame, Ranmoor.

The inadequate secondary schools are Chaucer, Parson Cross; Yewlands, Grenoside; Forge Valley Community School, Malin Bridge; and Outwood Academy City, Stradbroke Road.

Out of 131 primary schools in the city, 18 are outstanding, 83 are good, 25 require improvement, and five are rated inadequate.

The outstanding primary schools are Totley All Saints Primary; Totley Primary; Dore Primary; Porter Croft CE Primary, Sharrow; Stocksbridge Juniors; The Nether Edge Primary; Loxley Primary; St Thomas Of Canterbury RC Primary, Meadowhead; Brightside Nursery and Infants; Oughtibridge Primary; Bradfield Dungworth Primary; Waterthorpe Nursery and Infants; Stannington Infants; Holt House Infants, Abbeydale; St Wilfrids RC Primary, Millhouses; Dobcroft Infants, Millhouses; Beighton Nursery and Infants; and Dobcroft Juniors, Millhouses.

The inadequate primary schools are Oasis Academy Fir Vale; Acres Hill Primary, Darnall; Firs Hill Primary, Pitsmoor; Hatfield Primary, Shiregreen; and Concord Juniors, Wincobank.

But the full Ofsted list reveals that 59 primary schools – 45 per cent – have not been inspected in the last two years.

And it also reveals that 12 city secondary schools – 46 per cent – have not been inspected by Ofsted in the last two years.

Coun Jackie Drayton, cabinet member for children, young people and families, said: “It is heartening that the proportion of good and outstanding schools in Sheffield has continued to increase and is at its highest level, with the vast majority of Sheffield schools delivering a good or outstanding education.

“Pupil achievement and progress across the city has also continued to rise over the last five years.

“Many of the improvements have been greatest where the local authority, working with school partners, has targeted its work and where some of the city’s good schools have supported those facing significant challenges.

“However, we are not, and never have been, complacent. We have high expectations that every child in Sheffield should go to a great school and achieve their full potential.

“That’s why we set up Learn Sheffield in July which follows on from the successful City Wide Learning body. This new school company will enable an acceleration of school-to-school improvement across the city as the evidence shows that is the most effective way to drive up educational standards.”
