2011 ISI Inspection

Fairfield PNEU School ISI Report 2011.pdf

The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) is the body approved by the government for the purpose of inspecting schools belonging to the Independent Schools Council (ISC) Associations. Under the new system of inspection, ISI is approved to inspect both the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Extended Day Care in addition to Years 1–6 in one single inspection. The inspection process is rigorous and extensive in its scope, looking at every area of school life including education, welfare, health and safety and regulatory compliance. In every area we achieved excellent/ outstanding judgements which emphasise the school’s outstanding provision.

The tone and content of the report is encapsulated in the following comments:

"… the quality of the provision is outstanding."

"…the inspectors agreed that it is an exceptionally happy school."

"…the pupils are well educated in accordance with the aims of the school, and their overall achievement is outstanding."

"… Year 6 pupils achieve significant success in gaining places of their choice at their senior school and scholarships are won regularly."
