Ofsted is a regulatory government body that inspects and regulates services that care for children and young people such as schools, nurseries, fostering agencies, and children's services.

We are regularly inspected by Ofsted to make sure we are complying with the regulations and standards met by the governing bodies, and to highlight areas where we are excelling or where we could improve. We have a specially dedicated quality department who make sure we're not only complying with standards and regulations, but that we're exceeding them wherever possible.
