Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. Ofsted inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages.

Barkerend became an academy in 2014 and joined Star Academies in 2018. The school was last inspected by Ofsted in May 2019 and was  judged as ‘outstanding’ in all areas and therefore ‘outstanding’ overall.

Our school takes advantage of Star’s proven Academy improvement system, which has delivered outstanding outcomes in other Star schools. To learn more about Star’s approach to standards and improvement, click here.

Pupil attainment and teaching standards are kept under constant review and we carry out regular self-evaluations. We also get regular visits from our Star Quality Assurance Inspector (SQAI), a highly experienced educationalist. The SQAI quality-assures our self-evaluations and supports and challenges us to make sure we stay on track for Ofsted success.
