Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills) inspect and regulate schools in order to achieve excellence in the care of children and young people, and in education and skills for learners of all ages.
Our last inspection was occurred on the 18th – 19th October 2006 where our school was deemed as ‘Outstanding in ALL categories’.
Many outstanding schools then receive an Interim Assessment to evaluate whether a full inspection is required. Gumley House was given an interim assessment in July 2010 where it was stated that we continue to hold our outstanding status.
In March, 2012, we received a 'survey' inspection which consider big issues, looking closely at a specified subject (in our case, ICT) and its impact on teaching and learning across the school. We had the pleasure of welcoming Ofsted's National Advisor for ICT who, after his two day inspection, deemed our school to be outstanding.
