School Inspections

Learning, Skills & Education Insight on the RSN website has now been updated with an analysis examining overall effectiveness of state-funded schools inspected in England. The analysis presents Ofsted school inspection data for the period 1 September 2020 to 31 August 2021 and allows selection of authority or class and classification averages. Points of note from the analysis include:

  • For every type of school inspected (with the exception of nursery schools), a higher percentage are rated as Outstanding in Predominantly Urban local authority areas compared to those in Predominantly Rural.
  • The converse is true for schools rated as Inadequate, where there is generally a higher percentage in Predominantly Rural local authority areas than seen in Predominantly Urban.
