Ofsted and accountability
West Wimbledon Primary School was last inspected by Ofsted in November 2007, when it was judged to be outstanding.
The full text of the report of that inspection may be found here: 2007 Ofsted report.
The 2011 Education Act stated that, from January 2012, schools that were previously judged to be outstanding would not be subject to routine inspection unless concerns were raised about their performance. During the course of the Bill’s passage into law, Ofsted wrote to parents of the School, informing them that their recent, “interim assessment indicates performance has been sustained and that we will not be inspecting your school unless we receive further information that raises concerns. We will continue to undertake annual assessments of the school’s performance.
The School continues to keep itself appraised of the development of the inspection framework in order for us to seek to improve the overall quality of the education we provide, as well as ensuring that we have a robust evidence base for what we have done in the past, to inform what we hope to do in the future and to continue to meet our accountability standards. We also work closely with Merton’s School Improvement team and, in particular, our assigned Merton Education Partner.
