Ofsted and Performance Data
OFSTED is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. They inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
Long Crendon School was judged as ‘Outstanding’ following the 2008 OFSTED inspection.
When children begin the school year they are all working towards the same curriculum standards for their year group. As the year commences, the teachers will be able to assess whether the children are meeting the expected level for those standards, working at greater depth within the standards or have partially understood and so are still working towards them. In reporting attainment we now use the terminology ‘working towards’, ‘expected’ or ‘greater depth’. All children are striving to meet the expected level by the end of their academic year. On starting the next academic year they will all be working towards standards again as they are faced with a new set of curriculum standards for their year group.
