Ofsted 2023: Sefton primary and secondary schools rated ‘requires improvement’ in latest Ofsted reports

These local institutions received one of the lowest Ofsted rankings.

Students are being “hindered” at a Sefton school which has been downgraded following an Ofsted inspection.

An Ofsted report published last week following an inspection at St Michael’s Church of England High School in Crosby during November found weaknesses in curriculum, teaching and leadership that are impeding the progress of some students at the school.

While behaviour and attitudes, personal development and sixth form provision were rated as ‘good’ at the academy, which teaches over 700 children in Sefton, the inspection identified issues around the quality of education and leadership and management which led to it being downgraded overall from ‘good’ to ‘requires improvement’.

St Michael’s is the most recent school to receive the low ranking from the education watchdog, but the Sefton schools listed below were also deemed to ‘require improvement’ by Ofsted.
