William Patten Primary School


We are delighted to be sharing the outcome of the recent inspection at William Patten, which took place on Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th October 2023.

The school has been judged ‘Outstanding’ in all areas, the highest grade a school can achieve. This is set against a national picture where only 21% of schools maintain the outstanding grade when inspected again. This demonstrates how challenging it is for any school to achieve outstanding, so we are incredibly proud.

The OFSTED definition of outstanding is:

‘Outstanding is a challenging and exacting judgement. In order to reach this standard, inspectors will determine whether the school meets all the criteria for good under that judgement, and does so securely and consistently. In other words, it is not enough that the school is strong against some aspects of the judgement and not against others, but it must meet each and every good criterion. In addition, there are further criteria set out under the outstanding judgement, which the school will also need to meet’.
