Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They inspect services providing education and skills for learners of all ages, and also inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people.
Since September 2020, Ofsted have been carrying out 'interim visits' to schools and colleges to find out how they have been returning to the normal curriculum. In early November, Ofsted inspectors spent two days talking to 34 senior leaders, managers, teachers, students, parents/guardians and support staff about how the College has responded to the global pandemic.
We're really pleased to see that their official report provides strong evidence of a coordinated and carefully planned approach from the College. We recognise that for many of our students (and their families), this has been a very difficult year. Against this backdrop, our key aim has been to provide stability and normality, taking care to ensure that all students continue to receive high quality academic and pastoral support from our staff. We hope that this report reassures and informs you about the many measures we have taken as a College since March 2020.
