The worst schools in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset according to Ofsted

Every parent wants to give their child the best education they can and, when deciding which school to send their children to, many parents will consider the school’s Ofsted rating.

Ofsted’s role is to make sure organisations providing education, training and care services in England do so to a high standard for children and students. Its graded inspections provide these settings with a rating of ‘inadequate’, ‘requires improvement’, ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’.

These are the schools in the Bristol region that currently have the lowest rating of ‘inadequate’, according to the watchdog’s records. It should be noted that the rating is not necessarily a reflection of the existing provision, as many schools have converted to academy since the last inspection was done or have not been inspected for several years. The information is available on the Government’s website here.
