What Inspection Judgements mean:

Grade Judgement Description
Grade 1

school provides exceptionally well for all its pupils’ needs.
Grade 2
Good
These are very positive features of a school. A school that is good is serving its pupils well.
Grade 3
Satisfactory
These features are of reasonable quality. A satisfactory school is providing adequately for its pupils.
Grade 4
