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.

Fernhurst Primary School opened as an academy with the University of Chichester Academy Trust in September 2014 and we had our first Ofsted Inspection as an academy on 12 & 13 July 2017.  We are delighted to say that Ofsted graded our school as a Good provider.  Please click here to read our full Ofsted report

In June 2018 we also underwent an Early Years Inspection by our Academy Improvement Partner, you can read their report by clicking here.

OVERVIEW OF END OF KEY STAGE 1 RESULTS 2022

We are proud of our Y2 children who have made good progress this year.  Having missed fundamental aspects of their phonics journey during the pandemic, they successfully moved from 36% to 48% in reading and 12% to 60% in maths (between September and May).  We are pleased that they are catching up to the pre-pandemic national standards.  Support is in place for them to continue this good progress in Y3.  

SWIMMING

There is an expectation for all KS2 children to be able to swim at least 25m before they leave primary school.  In 2022, 95% of Y6 children left the school being able to swim at least 25m.
