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 schools like ours.


‘Pupils enjoy coming to Salterhebble Junior and Infant School. They try hard to follow the school values of independence, confidence, aspiration, resilience, respect and excellence. They are proud to wear the hummingbird badge which represents these values. Leaders have high aspirations for every pupil. They encourage everyone to ‘dream it, believe it, achieve it’.’ (Ofsted 2022)

‘Lessons buzz with excitement.’ (Ofsted 2022)

‘Staff in the early years are skilled at helping children to learn the phonic sounds they need to know. As a result, children get off to a flying start in reading.’ (Ofsted 2022)

‘Behaviour in lessons is good.’ (Ofsted 2022)

‘Pupils have sophisticated discussions about their learning.’ (Ofsted 2022)

‘Teachers use a range of resources to help pupils understand new learning and provide help when needed. This ensures that all pupils, including pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), learn well.’ (Ofsted 2022)

‘Pupils are taught to value and appreciate diversity.’ (Ofsted 2022)

‘There are many opportunities for pupils to try new things and to follow their interests.’ (Ofsted 2022)

OFSTED Parent View

Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour.  The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until our school is being inspected. To complete a questionnaire and give your views, please use the following link:

In November 2021, we carried out our annual parent survey. We were thrilled to read how 99% of children are happy at Salterhebble, however, we will keep working hard until we make it 100%!  Please click on the link below to see the results of the survey:

Assessment Results

The Government will not publish KS2 school level data for the 2021 to 2022 academic year. They have archived data from the 2018 to 2019 academic year because they recognise that the data from that year may no longer reflect current performance.
