Parent View

Please see attached Parent View explanation. (www.parentview.ofsted.gov.uk) We do hope parents will take time to visit Parent View and put their views about our school.


Dash board is a recent addition to the OfSTED website (www.dashboard.ofsted.gov.uk) where parents can see the performance of The Bellbird and other schools.‘The School Data Dashboard provides a snapshot of school performance at Key Stages 1 and  2.. The dashboard can be used by school governors and by parents to check the performance of the school in which they are interested. The School Data Dashboard complements the Ofsted school inspection report by providing an analysis of school performance over a three-year period. Data can be filtered by key stage or by topic:

  • Expected progress
  • Attainment
  • Attendance
  • Narrowing the gap between disadvantaged and other pupils

Inspections since September 2012

Schools now receive a phone call at about lunchtime to inform them that OfSTED will inspect the following day. A notice will go onto the school website to inform parents and a letter will go home with the children. For a school of our size, it would be expected that the inspection visit would be 2 days.

School performance

Of course we have to publish our school results and they can be viewed on the
DfE school performance tables website.
